Beware of the Dog II


I wanted to capture once again the close up of the hug and the velvet texture of the silky black dog.

When I was creating the dog’s head I was using charcoal which takes on a velvety feel as the layers build up. I do work a lot with my fingers and thumbs which gives me a very direct connection to the artwork, but in this case it felt even more personal and emotional as I began to feel as if I was actually stroking the dog as I worked!

It gives me much pleasure to think that my version of a black lab has provided so many people with a connection to their much loved best friend.
