First step in new greyhound rescue drawing

This new piece is still untitled but despite being nameless is starting to take shape.

There is no way you can make a lot of sense of what has been drawn.  The top of the back of a greyhound is showing as well as the beginning of both a leather collar and thick cotton jacket. I will post a follow-up which will shed a little more light. Promise!

This is my second piece for the Canine Art Guild's "Helping Paws 2008" exhibition. 20% of the sale will be donated to the Dumfriesshire & Cumbria Greyhound Rescue.

The medium used up until now are  2B and 8B graphite Derwent pencils.  The 8B was used for the darkest areas. I am drawing on Mellotex paper.

I have also been spending time researching into the work and life of a seriously good artist. Should you ever see any work with this signature make sure you take a double look (or triple!)... He was just plain excellent. I will be posting all about him over the next 10 days

As always thank you for popping by and have a great Sunday.
