This is masterful Grahame! The fur detail is amazing right down to the wet looking hair ends on the ears!! Hoe long does a portrait like this take you?
Thanks Sally, now that Im working full time, so cant just sit at my drawing board all day I forget to time how much work I'm putting in, but I would guess around 25 hours on this head study, and at least 5 of that was on the eyes...
I remember thinking that graphite drawings should be quicker than pastel becuase they are monotone!! I vey quickly found out that there is just as much work in a graphite as there is in a pastel maybe more!! It takes me about 21 to 30 hours to do a head and shoulders pastel!
