Here is the reference photo I’ve painted from for this.
This is my very willing model and muse who I use in a lot of my paintings.
My line sketch transfered onto the velour


Working that left part of the picture towards the
right laying in background areas.


Strengthening contrasts and adding the floor
details and shadows.


Working from the back forward for the plants and dog.
Picking out the bits of highlighted sunlight.


This plant was so fiddly!  Quite a lot of use for the
pastel pencils and a paper stump for neatening edges.


This is my finished painting which is 12″x18″.
The colours I worked with made the painting
more subtle than the original photo.
