These two lively girls sat very patiently while I took a few dozen photos of them. As usual I started with a detailed drawing and a little frisket to hold the white areas - especially necessary when there are such fine details as their beards and eyebrows!
Next I washed in soft shadows shapes and a few mid value shapes too. I needed some of the darkest dark though to gage values better so I began adding their dark masks.
I may do a little more work in the background fabric of the chair, but I am pleased with the life
and sparkle in their eyes - they are such precious pups!
