Dog Portrait from Photo, Dolly & Peggy

Work has started on my next portrait. Meet Dolly and Peggy, Peggy is a golden retriever and Dolly is a spaniel cross poodle. This portrait is to be in graphite pencil I have now started on the second dog, Dolly, who is a springer poodle cross. She has very curly and shiny ears which are going to be a lot of hard work!!!A bit later... Dolly's ear and neck are now in place and I'll be moving back onto Peggy's chest area.I have continued working on this portrait at a fair rate of knots, I've got a lot more done than I ever expected!! I need to go back to the darker areas adding further shading and darken Dolly's face in places nowI have at long last been able to take a photo of Dolly and Peggy in good light (a rarity at this time of year) and posted the final update. I have darkened a lot of Dolly's fur to show more contrast to the shine she has plus I have made the outline of her head more prominent. All that remains is for the mount colour to be chosen now.
...And after approval from the customer, Dolly and Peggy have been mounted in green and will be posted asap.
Annette who made the commission left me the following message...

"received today thank you so much especially doing a last minute job. It is brillant..."
