Couldn't resist this little cutie from a photo provided Melanie Phillips, my course tutor for the Pet Portrait Course run by the London Art College. It was a good practice piece for my graphite skills and I'm quite pleased with how he worked out. Any C&C welcome

A pleasure. Great work with a pencil. So much expression from only one color - used in teh optimal way. :)
Best regards. Henning

Thank you very much Mary and Dave, there are a lot more subtle tonal values on the ears that haven't shown up very well because of the difficulty with photographing graphite work:rolleyes:
