Mr. Finlay


A commission in pencil on Bristol board done for a dear friend as a surprise for Mr. Finlay's owner. Here is the reference photograph I worked from.


Being only a small piece I decided to go for a head and shoulders portrait, rather than put the whole body in.

a fine portrait you know how to capture the essence of animals, you have to be an animal lover!

This is my precious best friend Finlay Baliol Read! From this single photo Peter captured him in every single pencil stroke. He's lying asleep at my feet at this mo, an old man now, but whatever ...this picture means my first dog will be with me for always.... thank you x
