Giclee print of a beautiful pencil drawing of the ever loyal Dalmatian


This Dalmatian lived fairly near to me in North Yorkshire and I chose it out of the three the owner had available. The breed are known as 'Carriage Dogs' in the UK, because they were used as guard dogs for carriages and habitually ran beneath the axles between destinations. In the USA, where they cleared the road ahead for the horse-drawn fire engines, they are known as 'Fire Dogs'. This was also the penultimate study before I drew the head-study series to a close.

The drawing took approximately 72 hours to complete.

Fantastic detail in this brand new and official print, which has never been put on a wall.
Every hair on the dog seems to have been drawn

About the artist Mike Sibley
After leaving Leeds College of Art in 1970 he met his wife Jenny who bred and exhibited horses and animals. It was this that turned his talents in that direction. A professional artist now for over twenty years, he often spends over two hundred hours on a single drawing. Mike's work is special in its fine detail. The only tool for this is the pencil. He doesn't like colour, he says colour gets in the way. Mike's art sells in many countries including America, Australia and Scandinavia. His first limited edition print, an edition of fifty Irish Water Spaniel prints, sold out at its Crufts release in just three and a half hours. He now rarely accepts private commissions - only when time permits and a four-year wait is not unusual. The work is stunning. - Peter Tamblyn-Embling - Art Critic - (Condensed and updated from Our Dogs).
