Oscar complete

I actually finished Oscar a few days ago now, but didn't want to post it until the recipient had collected the drawing. With that done, here he is! The blue belton markings make this a nice dog to work on in graphite.

Size approx 11.5x15.5"

Onwards with Oscar

Here's another couple of days work on Oscar. The face is pretty much sorted, just need to finish off the ears before moving onto the curly neck and chest hair.
I'm finding this a fun one to draw - the markings and colouring of an English Setter lend themselves quite nicely to the humble pencil.

English Setter

Here we are with the weekend's work. This is Oscar, a blue belton English Setter.

I am 3 days into this, but having had a relatively quiet weekend demonstrating at Hawes, I got quite a bit more than I would usually expect. That may be good for drawing progress, but isn't great for sales - as always, we seem to be at the mercy of the weather, and after the week we just had, I can't blame people for not venturing out. There's always the next show though!!
