Mention "big black fluffy Newfoundlands" you can be sure you are referring to cuteness overload :D
This, a big mixed media (graphite and charcoal) drawing of mother and son Newfoundland pooches, was created in stages.
The most important stage: deciphering shapes through bundles of deep black fur. Once the noses, ears and eyes were pin pointed and sketched in: the real scribbling began.
The final stage involved a layer of Nitram charcoal to create more oomph and depth.

Loved discovering and developing a new approach to my work and the best... the unequaled feeling of success!
Next up on the board: equine with a somewhat shorter coat ;)
