A friend of a friend

I created this piece of art for my friend Aoife. During lockdown we can’t see each other, so I’m glad she has Sadie, who is a very friendly and playful puppy.

I used the pencils to create darker and lighter layers of shadow. I applied different pressure on the pencils in different areas. I didn’t want the background to be too detailed as it would take from her face, so I smudged it with pastel.

I hope I’ve captured Sadies excitable personality and her love for Aoife . ‘This is now’ for us.
