So here is my spaniel painting completed. This one didn’t take too long for me, I must have recharged my batteries at some point! I used derwent pastel pencils only for this to see if the range was sufficient for an entire dog painting and they were indeed enough. I also used brown pastelmat and I’m almost convinced this is the best combo for me. I have thousands of pastel pencils and its getting out of hand and I almost feel I want to slim down my supplies before I need a room just for them! It’s also easier when reordering supplies!
And here is the pastel painting framed and ready to go off to a new home in time for Father’s Day! The frame is brilliant as it matches the brown fur, I couldn’t have matched it closer to be honest so it looks pretty good.
I’ve filmed this one all the way through and now I just have to upload it as a video, as soon as it’s done I shall let you all know and you can see me working at top speed!
I have ordered some new art supplies and I have quite a few things to be getting on with, I have a week off work so it will be busy here in the studio, steam should be rising from my pencils!
