Fergie, graphite, watercolor and colored pencil, 14″ x 11″

72 fergie copy

This is a traditional pencil drawing done on Yupo, a type of synthetic paper, normally used for watercolor. The eyes are done in watercolor and a bit of colored pencil. This pup’s name is Fergie and yes, her eyes are really that blue! the reason I drew the chain around her neck is because Fergie lives her life chained up, 24/7. She lives in a very poor rural area of West Virginia. A longtime friend of mine, went to this small town with the group, Appalachian Service Project to help people in the area with carpentry repairs and such. That is when he met Fergie and brought back pictures of her. She broke my heart.
