Hi friends!

Sometime I wanted to portray a Caucasian Shepherd Dog.

Why him?

An incredibly difficult drawing object for me!

But I love unattainable goals!

For work this time, I chose tinted paper for sketches and limited myself to four colors - chalk, charcoal, sanguine and sepia.

It seemed to me that such a palette would be most suitable for the image of this dog.

Yes, our dog named Baron was be a model for drawing

So, I made a contour sketch of the shepherd's head with chalk.

This time I started working with the lightest color, because you can't draw with chalk on top of a strokes with charcoal.

I also laid out the lightest areas. I guided for myself that the light will fall from the top left and slightly in front.

Then she began to introduce midtones.

I worked with sepia on the more illuminated part, and walked sanguine along the contour of the shaded area - I made a semblance of contour. Somewhere I painted over the area completely, somewhere I applied separate strokes, imitating randomly protruding hairs of wool.

Well, the last step was to put coal into operation.

I strengthened the shadows, painted the details - eyes, nose, mustache, highlighted individual strands of wool on the shirt front and painted over part of the body.

Yes, it was very difficult to draw a shaggy dog with a strange expression on its face.

But I hope I did it!

Have a nice and creative day for all!
