I was testing graphite/polymer lead on watercolor paper (it's a long story) and I needed a quick sketch. No surprise that I sketched my golden retriever - Remy has a habit of turning toward me and giving me a smile over his shoulder. So sweet, I just want to give him a hug.
It's a very small sketch - about 3 X 4.25 inches overall. Using pastels on a small scale was challenging :-)
