The start of a new dog portrait

After some time away from the blog world, I now have some free time to post an update of my next commission; this time of two lovely mix breed dogs resting on their favorite spot aka the family sofa.
For this piece, I am using mainly Rembrandt's pastels along with various brands of pastel pencils on grey colored suede board. You can see the mottling effect (all of which will disappear since the whole painting will be covered in pastel) of the suede on the image below.
