This portrait is one that is so important to me I’ve had this incredible pup over 7 years and its about time she had her own portrait that really represented her. This is the first portrait I’ve ever done in this style so its extra special!

Hugo the soldier

Hugo

Traditional, coloured pencil

Hugo is a lovely little chap who im sure you will agree looks rather dashing in his uniform. Hugo is owned by my lovely Auntie​. The first portrait I have done with a uniform and the first done using water as a blender for my coloured pencils, but I’m really pleased with the outcome. I hope it wont be the last I really enjoyed doing this.
