Charcoal Portrait of Benjy the Border Terrier - From Start to Finish

charcoal-portrait-border-terrier
I was asked to draw the gorgeous Benjy by Fiona for her mother Julia.
She sent me a fantastic photograph of him with so much expression in his face so I was able to really get a lot of detail into the portrait - I drew him in 8" x 10" size.
See how his portrait developed in the below video:

"My daughter Fiona Gear has just given me a portrait of my terrier Benjy which you drew. I wanted to tell you that it is absolutely brilliant, you have caught his character and expression so well, I am thrilled with it and all my friends have been admiring it as well. Just done from a photo I think you are so clever.”
