A client in England has requested a drawing of her father, who is a writer of biographies, in his sunroom overlooking the woods. She asked for his charming dachshund at his feet and some deer peeking through the woodland. She sent some headshots of her dad, but I filled in the rest of his figure and the scene. With a few more details added in – she says the dog can be ‘pudgier’ – I can go on to a color sketch. My initial sketch is below.
