Gauche, Color Pencil, Felt Marker, Ink on Presentation Paper
Madoc, is the dog of a good friend of mine. I thought for a good present that I would paint their dog for them. This was not an easy task for me and after about 20 false starts, I finally managed to get a decent likeness. With some of the earlier attempts, I would get relatively far in the process and make a huge mistake that I couldn’t hide so I had to start over again. With this last version, I got so nervous that I would make another mistake and have to start all over again, but I was running out of time fast!
There are a few mistakes, but I can overlook them… in time… Anyone who I showed these mistakes have all told me that I alone see them. And, if I never pointed them out, they couldn’t tell.
