New painting – a Boxer

I have been commissioned to do a new painting of a Boxer, which I start my preparations for tomorrow.
Here is the main photo I will work from, but I will use another 4 to cover all the angels of her face to help build up her character.

This final drawing which I now have to transfer onto the ‘Not’ textured watercolour board to then begin painting. I cannot draw straight onto the board, as I am unable to use an eraser, which destroys the painting surface.

Here are the series of photos and the development of the boxer. The colours vary slightly as I was taking the photos at different times of the day.

And this is the finished painting.

    Mind blowing incredible, and I’ve seen some great work by past students of our old college. You’ll never believe this but my old border collie cross was also called Lola.
