DAY 2 of the 100 days - Rough Collie
Welcome to the second day of my 100 pictures in 100 days project. Each day I will post a new small picture here on my blog.
Title: Rough Collie.
Price: £50.00 (price includes postage & packing within UK - please contact me for other destinations)
Medium: Graphite pencil on heavyweight cartridge paper.
Size: 12cm x 9.5cm
Today's picture is of a Rough Collie. This isn't my dog, she belongs to a friend in Devon. As a child we had a rough collie but it was a tri-coloured one and not a sable like this lass. She has a particularly good head and ears for a rough collie, I remember as a child at a show one breeder had used chewing gum to weigh down the tips of the ears so they dropped like this collie.
This is quite a small picture and I am finding it much harder and it takes longer to get the detail in, something I must remember when I am going to be doing drawings for the miniature society later in the year. It takes lots of sharp pencils too so I got through more doing this than doing a larger one. I have to get on with the drawings now for the Society of Equestrian Artists exhibition - I still have one and a half to do!
