Hello everyone! 😊

Today I want to share with you my first commission of the new year! I just finished this one up a couple of days ago;

This cute little girl is the first of three portraits and I am having so much fun!

This drawing is made with chalk and charcoal on light grey fabriano paper.

When I'm drawing with charcoal I always draw with something called Nitram charcoal. It's a lot harder than your normal Willow charcoal so you can sharpen it on a fine grad sandpaper to get a thin tip that works great for detail work.

To achieve a really dark, rich value I first draw with a B- grade charcoal and then go over it with a H- grade charcoal
This way the softer charcoal gets pushed down in the paper.

I hope you are all having a great weekend! 😊❤

The ancient Mbaya Indians of the Gran Chaco in South America believed that humans originally lived underground until dogs dug them up.

Dog is considered to be the only animal that loves its owner most of all and least of all - itself
