These are the stages I went through working on a commission this week of a lovely little dog called Rocky. I gathered the images I had and then sketched a few ideas in boxes the size of what was required for the final drawing. I then used a variety of media to see which worked best; oils, acrylics and coloured pencil.

I opted for coloured pencil as it enabled me to give more detail in such a small picture (12 cm x 12 cm).

Here it is semi-finished; background completed and most of the shading on Rocky. The highlights in the eyes were protected by using masking fluid. The next stage will be to decide on the colour for the cushion.
