Pet Drawing Portrait, Rhode Island, Pitbull “Opal”

Pet Portraits

Opal was a Mother’s Day present and she was so fun to draw. I loved the clarity of her eyes, she just looks so soulful.

I removed the big chunky bark collar and gave her a dramatic dark background to make her stand out. She looks very striking, I think 🙂 And I love the way all her little hairs and whiskers catch the light against the dark background.

Medium: Pet Drawing Portrait in Graphite
Size: 10″ x 8″

This photo shows her eyes a little clearer so I could get lots of detail

That looks amazing. I wouldn't change a thing.
