Buddi Jack Russel Maltese cross
Buddi has been Denise's companion for fourteen years. He talks to me at my feet when I sit down in her loungeroom. My two little dogs love him, but he is old and sick now, and not too fussed any more about two young ruffians hooning around.
Working on the colour pencil drawing
I started his colour pencil portrait this week and Denise came to see the work in progress and was really moved.
The paper I am using is Canson Mi-Tientes in mid blue, which contrasts very well with his light coat.
Working for an hour each day, it is progressing quickly.
