My first attempt at painting a dog in pastel.
I had to order some new pastels from Terry Ludwig to do this piece.
The reason why I decided to a dog portrait is because my brother-in-law has the same breed and wants me do a portrait for him, so I need to check if I could even do one, and get some practice at the same time.
Size 28cm x 21cm on mid-brown toned pastel paper.
Mostly Terry Ludwig's Umber Shadows & Shades pastels.

In the photo reference I used for this painting, I loved the deep blue of the sky against the cloud bathed in the light of the setting sun. It was a blue that you never see in the day full daylight. The birds also added a little extra story to this simple composition.
