Pet Portrait of Dutchess, Drawn in Graphite

I loved drawing this portrait of Dutchess, such a pretty gal. I drew her with several different pencils and powdered graphite. I wanted to really convey her softness, the calm in her eyes and bring out the interesting textures in the couch while keeping all of the focus on her. The leather of the sofa was a fun new challenge for me and we were all happy with how it turned out!
