Dog portrait on the easel

Pastel portraits are probably my favorite type of commission. I also enjoy graphite pencil portraits because of the detail I can achieve with a fine pencil lead but the richness of the pastel colors can't be beat!
This fella and his shoulder buddy are slowly coming to life on the suede board.
