Horton {a new drawing}

20100810 Horton dwg
{Horton - 19" x 12" - Mixed Media}

Here is a portrait of my friend's basset hound. It was drawn using the Robert Liberace method that employs terracotta and black verithin pencils with a white pastel pencil used for the highlights and areas lighter in tone than the prepared paper.

so cute and well drawn , like the technique ( hatching ) and the bright colours that
you are using in this drawing

Thanks Linda, Horton had fantastic eyes, big, dark, and emotional, and I would melt with emotion when near him.

Thanks Mary, Horton is a great name, it came from the Dr. Seuss book "Horton hears a Who"
