Beyond. New graphite canine drawing


This week's work took me off on a tangent, a good tangent but a tangent nevertheless.
Realising I needed another entry for the up and coming CAG Helping Paws online show, I got down to business.
Love the mystery of the piece the way so much is said yet so much left unsaid...
Applied my lessons learned from the master Da Vinci once again in the drapery of the dog's blanket.

Beyond is for sale unframed (framing is easily organised ).
20% of the proceeds of the sale will be donated to the DCGR.
Dumfries & Cumbria Greyhound Rescue is based in Scotland helping Greyhounds escape their doomed future after their racing careers end.
This is worthy cause I am proud to support the best way I can: through my art.

Who knows maybe one day I'll be able to adopt one of these thoroughbred canines myself ...
Until then I proudly present Beyond... the dog that never turned round.

Wonderful work and what a worthy cause for you to donate to! Love the doggie's "coat" and how the white of the fur blends into the white of the background.

Gorgeous, Sheona, and for such a worthy cause. We have several rescue groups for greyhounds in our area for those graceful, elegant creatures!
