Rusty's portrait... work in progress

Hi, I just thought I'd share a portrait I'm doing for Celeste. She asked me if I would do a portrait of her DH's dog Rusty when she commented on Kath's lovely boy, Buddy's portrait I did in July.
I asked her if she wanted me to do a colour portrait instead of the graphite ones I've been doing here so far. The last coloured pencil work I'd done was around 10 years ago or maybe more so I'd forgotten it is a much longer process to complete (around 16 hrs so far), but I'm getting there.

So for you Celeste, this is a peak of how your lovely wee dog's portrait is coming along .

I shouldn't be long finishing it now. I've worked on it more since this photo.
