What a journey this pet portrait has been.
My initial sketches?
I was incredibly frustrated with them.
(Pink carpet isn't the most motivating thing in the world either, by the way).
I wanted to scrap the whole thing and be done with it.
After a few tears, lots of charcoal dust, and several sheets of paper....
I decided to breath and stick with it.
(I like to call it Determination;
my husband will say it's Stubbornness :) )
I'm on the home stretch now...
Just need to fix a few details.
Charcoal on toned charcoal paper.
So glad I didn't throw in the towel.
With which projects are you glad you stuck it out?
