Step 6- dog in pastel


I am really enjoying adding the long fur of this sheltie. For those who are curious, I am using a combination of soft, round pastel sticks as well as pastel pencils and a touch of verithin colored pencils for the finer detail. I especially love the extra soft white stick (Rembrandt) for the brightest white one could possibly achieve on the suede.
