Look Out, Your Practice is Showing.

milyinprogressA friend’s mother requested a charcoal portrait of her Cairn Terrier, Mily. I just started this morning  (and it’s only just after 10AM now) so only one eye is in place and everything else is still rough, but I’m getting faster! I never finish outlining and begin filling in after a couple of hours; it’s always taken me the better part of a day to focus on lines and proportions and light direction before I move on to the second phase.

Time for some breakfast.
