Time to share some of my Christmas commissions. This is Aero, a King Charles spaniel. I could tell immediately that the reference photo would make an excellent sensitive drawing. I have drawn him in conte pastel pencil, conte soft pastels and sennelier pastels. The reference photo had one eye almost closed so I needed to open it up more otherwise it would look unusual. It is a good example of when artistic licence is needed, in a photo it looks fine because we know its a photo so it must be correct, but different sized eyes in a drawing is judged to be an error.
