Pet Drawings Washington DC, “Austin”

Pet Portraits

Pet drawings like Austin are fun because I felt like I really got to know him from the stories I heard about him and how his mom described him as a “sweet soul”.

His owner also inspired me to draw him in charcoal which is a medium I hadn’t used in a long time. I loved how he turned out so much that I can’t wait to draw another fluffy guy with it! It works sooo nice for that soft fluffy fur of his. Including the tiny curls of white fur around his nose.

Medium: Dog Portrait in Charcoal
Size: 11″ x 14″

This is the reference photo for the dog portrait of sweet Austin.

The portrait is beautiful. I bought a frame for it prior to Christmas and it was the best gift under the tree!
