Dog portrait progress of a painting...

I don't know why uploading images to blogger alters the color and fuzzes out the detail but the green background on this painting is totally off (it should be more forest green, toward the blue spectrum)! Oh well, regardless, I wanted to share an update now that I've added the eyes and started layering the facial fur. It is a tedious process of layering and blending the pastels directly on the suede but well worth the results.
He still looks sort of funny at this stage with his nose and open smiley mouth only sketched in.


  1. Oh Colette!!! This is coming along beautifully!! His eyes are fantastic...a great start!!!!

  2. Colette, this is coming along beautifully!

  3. Thank you Hilda and Carole! This dog is a senior so will look quite mature when I'm done.
