Teo is a Portuguese Water Dog and his portrait was commissioned as a gift for Teo's owner. Teo apparently has lots of personality, so getting one clear shot of him was a challenge for my client. His right eye is perpetually covered by hair, so finding that eye to put in his portrait was also a challenge!

"Teo" - Graphite pencil, 8" x 10"

To keep him from looking like a one-eyed dog, it was important to show some of his eye while retaining his "signature" look. Creating Teo's portrait was a bit of a challenge, but I feel happy to have achieved my goal! As no two pets are alike, no two portraits are alike. Creating a pet's unique portrait is always a challenge, but always a joy!
