Dylan is a golden retriever and he belongs to a lovely couple called Dot and David who have been huge supporters of my art - he's my third commission for them. I met Dylan the week after they got him when he was a teeny-weeny hyperactive ball of fluff and feet.
Now almost a year later, his huge feet have fulfilled their potential, and he's grown into a massive handsome boy. So I was thrilled when Dot approached me to do a picture of him for David's 70th birthday.
The picture is going to be a triple multiple, almost like a kind of triptych, with the main picture being Dylan as he is now, and two subsidiary pics of him as an adolescent and as a tiny puppy.
So far, I've just finished the pic of him as an adolescent:
And here's how he fits in with the full picture:
So there you have it. Drawing Dylan is making me very happy!
