Border Collie in Graphite

This is Tilly who is a very sweet little Border Collie. I dontated a portrait as a prize to a local dog show and this little girl won 'Best in show'. This is her prize.

Graphite pencil on Mellotex paper
Size A4.


  1. She's gorgeous Bev. Sometimes its a treat to get back to basics and work in graphite pencil isn't it?
    Tilly's mum must be over the moon with her prize

  2. Thanks Sue, yes I really enjoyed doing this one, but found I got really obsessed with the technique, which is fine for portraits I guess, but needs watching for other stuff. Her owner is thrilled.

  3. What a sweetie, and a lovely prize to get, better than a silver cup! Know what you mean about getting obsessed with doing graphite, it gets you that way.


Tiger just completed, I've called it 'Concentration' because he looks as if he is concentrating on prey to pounce on.  I us...
