First commission portrait

My first official request by a colleague, who wanted me to do a portrait of her dog, Bonnie, who is passed.

It was a very challenging piece as I had no idea how to render white fur in shadow.

This was my 5th and final attempt that I presented to her, and to my relief she was most happy with me capturing Bonnie’s expression, as I couldn’t see past the sloppy rendering mistakes resisting the urge to start over a 6th time was a big learning curve.
