On my easel this week is a Bouvier des Flandres that I am doing for a commission. (Thank you!) His name is Boomer and he belongs to some wonderful people that are vendors at many of the dog shows I attend. When I first saw Boomer he was busy greeting customers at the booth across the way from me. His greeting usually surprised a great many people unless you knew he was there. He stayed hidden behind the table in their booth until someone would come up, then this very large, hairy head would come out from under the tablecloth to say hello. I knew that eventually I would have to paint him!
This piece is being done in colored pencil on Stonehenge paper.
