This was a pet portrait done from a photograph of a show dog (Name of dog to be withheld for security – it won a lot of shows!!!) It was partly owned by the breeders from whom we got our Weimaraner, Peppy. In this pet portrait I decided to be loose and free with the pastel and let the image fall onto the paper rather than my normal method of blending. I quite liked the outcome and effect but I still to prefer to be more precise for portraiture, especially for commission purposes unless asked otherwise!
