This beautiful little Shetland Sheepdog called Sam, was part of a trio of portraits all produced in Coloured pencils. I went up to meet him and his 2 sisters and took my camera so I could capture some quality photographs and spend some time with them to get an idea of their characters. Sam's eyesight had sadly deteriorated over a period of time and he could not see well and so was uncomfortable with a stranger trying to take photographs of him, so I stepped back and took what I could without stressing him too much. Sam passed away, age 15 on the 3rd February 2014 and so this portrait is extra special to the owners who said it was " a lasting memory and fitting tribute to a wonderful dog who gave them so much"
