sketchbook rough, watercolour.
This is a rough sketch for a commission portrait of a border collie I am doing for a client. I chose an autumnal background so the colours would contrast with the almost monochrome of the dog. The most important thing was to capture that collie "look" - the way they look intently into you with such intelligence. My parents had collies so I know the look! Once I have done the finished piece I will post it - the client said he would be happy with just the rough LOL!
