This is the lovely Mutley. He’s had a bit of a rough time of late and had to have major surgery which thankfully he pulled through and so deserves his very own springer spaniel pet portrait. Continue reading Springer Spaniel Pet Portrait in pastel
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!
Once more I’ve been busy at the easel. This is my latest spaniel dog portraits in the making. This one is being videod so hopefully there will be a little film to watch at the end of it! I’m completing it solely in derwent pastel pencils with a couple of derwent sticks for the background and on pastelmat. It will measure 12×12 inches and is to be a surprise Father’s Day Gift.
