Hunting Dog in Outdoor Scene Artwork Drawing

My client sent me a photo of her husband's hunting dog sitting in their backyard with a fence behind him. I 'moved' the dog from that scene into a classic hunting scene at the client's request.
The dog is her husband's hunting companion, and this outdoor scene suited him perfectly.
The dog was drawn in graphite pencil, the background was done in pastel chalks, and the grasses were done in pastel chalks and Lyra colored pencils.
My client was completely thrilled, which of course was my goal!

Customer Letters:

"Good morning, Darla.
I actually gave it to him for his birthday in early December and he LOVES it!!! He was so surprised and so excited...he actually had tears in his eyes.

It's hanging prominently in his office, and he brags about it to every client he meets with.
Thanks again for a terrific job."


"I don't think I ever gave you feedback on the portrait of Rusty you sketched for me as a Christmas present.

My girlfriend, her sister and her mom thought it was terrific and spot on. They really liked it, thought it was well done and a fitting way to remember their favorite pet.

I think they shed a few tears as well. So, I scored some major points thanks to you. Ha!"
