Finished Painting

The finished painting on Velour (sand colour) 8″ x 8″

In this demo I am experimenting with working small. Just how small can you go in soft pastel and still capture a likeness on a dog? This piece is just 8″ square and provides a simple landscape background.
By working smaller you force yourself to focus on the most important elements and not get carried away with details. Strangely I always find that working like this loosens my style.
This short demo takes you right from the drawing stages showing how I sketched this freehand. I have also provided you with my sketch and the photo reference at the link below.

At just over 2 hours long it’s the perfect project that can be finished in one or two sittings.
