Memories of summer drawn out.








Here are the first steps of my new piece "What's on the table".
Inspiration for the piece is taken from a photo I took last summer.

Layout is first sketched in, the tones and values established, the work starts.  5B and 2B pencil used for the dog and HB and 2H used for the table. 
A total of 12 hours work. 
The table was drawn first as it a major player in the composition.
The first dog is finished and just needs a little tweaking...

I love this picture of dog curiosity! The hair details are great.
