Boomer. 9 x 12, colored pencil

Please meet Boomer. He's a sweet little Yorkie that a friend of mine commissioned a pet portrait of. Her son and his fiance live with her right now, but they'll be moving out soon, taking Boomer with them, and she wanted a drawing of him to remember him by. I used colored pencil on a light tan pastel paper. Boomer has a lot of blonde coloring on his face, so the tan pastel paper made a great midtone base that I could use to find the lights and darks more easily with. This was really fun, I'm going to play around with colored pencils some more.
