20" x 40" graphite, charcoal and acrylic on wood panel | nfs
Gracie Jones: matriarch of the herd, studio dog, medicine mama and confidante. She's one of my favorite models as she has a gift for holding a pose...she naps...a lot.
My preference for capturing the true character of the subject is through the sketch portrait with the graphite underlay drawing exposed as an integral part of the finished work.
* FYI Don't miss Beverly and Billy Ray Mangham's Umpteenth Home Show 27/28/29 November at Sleeping Dog Studio in San Marcos, TX. For a map and more information: http://www.zzzdog.com/
