Shadow 9 X 12 Coloured pencil and pastel

This is a gift for my son, and is a little portrait of his dog "Shadow". I forgot to photograph it before I framed it...in a hurry to get it ready. It is 9 x 12 coloured pencil and pastel pencil on black bristol. Haven't ever posted in this forum before as I don't usually do animals. Unfortunately, picture is from my phone and looks a little fuzzy to me

It might be a bit fuzzy but I can tell it's a lovely portrait. Good work on the colours and the folds in the blanket, and I like the eyes.

Thank you Triduana and Katiepea for the supportive comments. It has been a long time since I have drawn or painted and I appreciate you taking the time to comment

Good portrait. With the blanket and the pose, it comes through how loved this dog is, how much a member of the family. Love that expression.
