Pastel portrait commission
Here's the latest dog portrait I will be working on. Overall, this photograph is too grey and monotonous so I will be changing the color of the water and the sand as well as the blue cast on the side of the dog. Otherwise, it is a nice, lively pose with good contrast and light...I love the dog's action pose with her paw in the foreground, as well as the foam on the water and the waves creeping up on the soft, sleek sand. I will be working this portrait using pastel on sandpaper, size 14" x 18".
