    pit bull pencil custom portrait progress
    I began working on this lovely brindle pit bull portrait this afternoon. Her name is Josie, she’s a Christmas portrait so I’ll be getting this drawing done up in the next day or so to put it with a Gift Certificate for my client – I will be painting Josie again some time in January. My client rescues pit bulls and I have to give her props for that, she has 5 dogs at the moment (Josie, sadly, has gone over the rainbow bridge).

    I am really drawn into this offset curled up pose, after looking through all of her photos I thought this best suited her personality and comfort in her surroundings.

    I’ll post all of the progress together so you can “watch” the piece as it develops.

    Aww, poor Josie and her “mom”. Memorial work has to be harder than other portraits. And kudos to your client for working with pitties. They can be such wonderful dogs. My sister’s had two that were just the biggest babies in the world and so gentle. I miss them, too. :dog:

    This is a very heartwarming pose. And I have to say Josie is in heaven with tons of great company :-) Hugs to her mom for opening her heart to the pit bulls. Leanne, I chuckled when I read that you would ‘have this done in a day or so’. Looking at your work, one would swear it takes alot longer… :-)
