Portrait of Olivia, beautiful merle Australian Shepherd and winner of a selection for 2019 publication in the international colored pencil magazine Anne Kullberg's Hidden Treasures.
I love painting dogs in different mediums, can you tell? The phrase "pets enrich our lives" is an understatement.
This portrait was a pleasure to draw/paint. About 7 - 8 layers of color were used to achieve the depth of shades and colors that give her life.
Colored pencils are a slow medium requiring patience, a zen process.
