More pastel layers on this dog painting...
It seems I haven't posted an update of this dog portrait for a while. The progression is slow due to the many layers and blending of pastel on the white sand paper being somewhat time consuming. I usually like to use colored paper when working with pastels and end up choosing a paper with the base color that is predominant in a painting to cut back on pastel application.
The sandpaper used for this pastel painting is Wallis museum archival grade which is very fine and allows for up to 25 layers of pastel.
