Portrait of "Rags"

I was recently commissioned to create a portrait of this beautiful and noble looking Collie named Ragnar, "Rags" for short. His family, who live in England, sorely miss this dear old friend who passed away last year at the age of 15.

The portrait of Rags was created with graphite pencil on Stonehenge paper and measures 10" x 8". The photo below was the one reference photo I had of Rags. As you can see, there are lots of trees in the background, so I eliminated those to focus on Rags himself. His family just received his portrait and I'm happy to hear that they were surprised and delighted with the gift of this portrait of their cherished pet and friend.
