"Two of a Kind"
This study started life as a commissioned portrait of two loved Afghan Hounds but, when the drawing was completed, I had lost contact with my clients. The Afghans were photographed on the Stray in Harrogate on a very windy day. At that time I thought the photographs would merely yield detail and that I would have to return for further photography on a calmer day. But a real feeling of life and vitality ran through the source photos, which I could not resist.
With the hair blowing way from their faces, these two lovely dogs show the full beauty of their expressions in a pose rarely seen in Afghan Hound art.
The original drawing took 62 hours 39 minutes to complete and is in my personal collection.
