I started this a few weeks ago as a fur demonstration for a U3A drawing class. Today I decided to finish it. It is the first time I have done a background in pencil and in reality it is not brilliant although it looks fairly smooth here. Not sure what I am doing wrong so will need to experiment more before trying another but I was quite pleased with the dog. The white fur looks a little blue due to the photograph, I should have scanned it really. It's about 7" square on Mellotex.
