For Stanley’s portrait I worked from a fantastic reference photo taken by Gail Fogarty.

Gail’s wonderful reference photo – view more of her work at

It was requested not to include the background so as to focus more on Stanley’s incredibly handsome face.

Trying to capture the softness of those gorgeous silky ears!

The finished portrait, pastel 10″ x 8″ / 25 x 20cm.

Stanley’s finished portrait was framed by River Crane Framing, and I think they did a fantastic job! The colour and softness of the frame compliments the portrait perfectly.
