Daisy - French bulldog

Meet my latest commission, Daisy, a 6 month old French Bulldog, and as cute as they come. I love her pugnacious expression. Of course she is spoiled rotten by her family. I loved drawing her, the wrinkly face, the brindle coat, her cute little pushed in nose, and of course great reference photos made it easy.

Size: A4
Support: Fabrianno Artistico HP
Pencils: Faber Castell Polychromos


  1. awww very cute :)

    you did a great job with the portrait :D

  3. Thanks Sue, Don't know if that's my end or yours, but I can now post to your blog which I couldn't do for a while, they just didn't appear! Computers...a mixed blessing, great when they work properly but a nightmare when things go wrong.

  4. Too true.
    We're leaving for India today .. hoping to get some good ref. photos there but its going to be a hectic tour - 1 week North viewing temples, Taj Mahal, Pink Palace etc then a tiger/wildlife park, then flying South to tour spice/tea plantations etc ... we don't spend longer than 2 nights in any one place so packing is a nightmare!
