Bearded Collie Portrait
Bearded Collie Portrait. I was commissioned to portray this beardie bitch ‘Emer’ from photographs supplied by the client. The bitch had passed away a few years previously and the photographs supplied were not good, and had been taken at a distance. However the client desperately wanted a better reminder of her friend whom she had lost; and so I agreed to accept the commission and to do my best to project the character and idiosyncracies of the bitch, from a mixture of all the photographs which were available. The sketches depict her wet on the beach, having been swimming, and standing on a lawn grinning.
