Pastel dog portrait.

There are a few things I’m not entirely pleased with, but on the whole I’m happy with it. I could pick at it endlessly. But I won’t.

Collie update.

Jan. 25th 2012

First layer of the collie almost complete:

Next step is to spray it with fixative and start work on the next layer, adding more darks and lights.

Collie dog portrait.

I didn’t have much time to work on it yesterday, and it’s been quite some time since I’ve used pastels at all, but I’m pleased with how it’s coming along. The eyes need some more work… they don’t match up well.
