Humphrey’s Pet Portrait

Humphrey is the most gorgeous Cavapoo and I have drawn him at 16 x 12 size adding a final scan for you to see below. I worked from two photos for this portrait to get the best pose for Humphrey, one for the head and one for the body. The original photo of Humphrey sitting on the bench was lovely, however he was looking down slightly and my client had a photo of him looking at the camera  at just the right angle, so I was able to swap heads to create a unique portrait for them.  I also liked the idea of having the garden bench he was sitting on too as a nice calming backdrop. Hopefully he will be sent off to my clients this coming week.

I am now starting a lovely dog called Henri Bell and my client describes him as a ‘bossy little whatsit!’ I am really looking forward to drawing him and also showing everyone the finish scan as I know it will make you smile and go ahh!

      😀 Thank you Jennifer! There seems to be new breeds popping up all the time doesn’t there. I don’t mind, as long as I get the chance to draw them 🙂 🙂 Just in case our readers don’t know, its a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Poodle. I guess I should have put that in the post! Melanie xx
