Border Collies Rosie (right), and grandson Sonny (left), make a lovely double coloured pencil portrait. Both are loving, loyal, and incredibly clever, and never leave their owner’s side.
Six year-old Sonny, the only boy from a litter of 7, is trained to work sheep, but is also very talented at searching for things and has found phones and wallets etc even in woodland and beaches, as well as apples hidden around the house for him.
Rosie is ten years old and has been with their owners since she was 3 1/2. She is very gentle and loves cuddles.
I love to draw Collie portraits – they often produce good results as the texture of their fur suits pencil well, and their contrasting colours add impact. Collies are renowned for their intelligence, and I always try to capture some of that wisdom in their eyes and expressions.
