The Bernese Mountain Dog

My husband has many clients within the community that range from car dealerships, fast food, hair salons, and pet groomers. After completing the scratchboard of my pug, I bounced an idea off of my husband...would one of the pet groomers allow my to display an example of my scratchboard portraits? We talked to them and they were excited for me to do a portrait on their beautiful 9 month old Bernese Mountain dog in exchange for displaying it in their shop. The above picture is the portrait while still in progress.
Here is a close up of the face.
Details of his muzzle.
This is the finished piece (picture taken before I framed it). Scratchboard can get redundant and I have to take breaks often to give my mind a rest, but I love the black and white effect.


  1. I see business going your way, Beverly! It looks like a photo...beautifully detailed!! Congratulations on this one.

  2. Thank you. I have received a commission already, yay!
