Dog Drawing, New York, “Jack”

Dog Drawing of Jack in charcoal

This noble looking guy was a lovely experience to work on. I could just feel his seriousness and love for his owner from his pictures. I hope that shows through in the portrait.

His owner’s love for him was so apparent and he told me “Those relaxed, happy, open mouth moments were when he was the most “him”, they were just hard to capture”. So that’s what we tried to capture of course.

We used a couple of photos – Jack looked happy and relaxed in one and we liked the background and the story the other photo told. Combined they make a great portrait and tell a story about Jack’s adventurous life.

Medium: Dog Drawing in Charcoal
