Happy Dog

I had such a great time creating this piece for a gentleman that wanted to give this to his wife for Christmas. The personality of this painting matched up to the happiness of the dog in real life. I am very content with the outcome of this creation. This is a 11 x 14 pastel painting

What a cute dog!  It took a while for me to paint this, but I wanted to study the color involved in drawing an animal.  There are so many colors to take into consideration.  Pinks, eggplant and even dark blue were used in Molly.  It is amazing how many colors we don’t see when we look at an object or even a human being.  Of course, I have an amazing instructor to point these colors out to me.  This medium is very fun to work with.  Pastels blend beautifully and give an artist so many options of the texture they want to display; like adding the fuzziness to dogs or the shine to glasses…the sky is the limit!  Enjoy my pictures…I know I am thrilled with this one!
