4 steps in Paul's finished portrait.

Yikes, more than 17 months have passed since I last drew a dog!
Reason enough to give this new canine portrait special attention.

Meet Paul.
Paul is cool.
Paul is tall, black, goofy and ... camera shy.
Looking away, relaxed, eyes focusing in the distance, anticipating his next move is how I met him, got to know him and had to render him.
