Charcoal Portrait of Buzz and Dory the Black Labradors - From Start to Finish

This lovely portrait of Buzz and Dory was commissioned by Claire from Jets Doggy Day Care for one of her favourite customers and close friends.
I did the portrait as a medium sized portrait sketch using two separate images of Buzz and Dory and it took me around eight hours to complete.
I was really pleased with the finished piece - black dogs can sometimes be quite hard to capture in charcoal but I love how this turned out! Claire and her husband Nigel were delighted with the finished article and so were the recipients of the drawing.
See the portrait coming together in the below video:
“It’s arrived and we both absolutely love it. You have captured Buzz and Dory completely.”
