Portraits of Max & Rosie - Cavalier King Charles Spaniels

Saturday, January 04, 2014

These two portraits were commissioned by a friend for her daughter. Each is 5" x 5" on Ampersand Scratchbord™. After I completed the majority of the scratching on each portrait, I tinted them with colored ink. After adding the color, I do a little more scratching to pull out highlights and tidy things up.  I scanned more progress stages of Max's portrait than I did of Rosie's.
