Art for fun-Pencil portrait: In memory of Nero

August 29, 2008 at 4:57 pm (Art for fun, Sargent Original)

This is Nero, the beautiful dog of Violetta, a friend from work. I did a full color oil portrait of him a few years ago. As you can probably tell, the pastel sketch below is the same dog. I was designing the oil portrait with a sketch in pastel. The final oil painting turned out quite different.

Nero lived a very long happy life and recently passed away. I wanted to do this sketch of him in memory of his sweet personality.

Even when he was so very old, he had the temperment of a pup. I was glad to know him.
