Pastel portrait of German Shepherd Dog

Here's the finished portrait of Shelby, pastel on suede, 8x10. This one had its own challenges as the client wanted the dog with her mouth closed and most of the photos were not the best to work with. Thank goodness for Photoshop and high resolution scanners!!
I edited the look of my blog with the new template option...will have to think about it some more but I think I like it.
