How to paint a dog in pastels ~ a demo of painting the portrait of a wonderful dog named Harvey.

Harvey is the dog of some friends of mine - he is a handsome boy with a lot of personality.  Below I have posted some progress photos to illustrate the steps to making a dog portrait.  I hope you will find it helpful!  :)

Pastel painting - "Encroaching"

"Encroaching" 8x10 inches, pastel on board
Available through Etsy 

This barn/shed is right down the road from where I live.  I drive by it all the time, and for some reason, it always draws my eye.  I think I like the simplicity of it sitting in the field with only the oak trees for company.

Thanks for looking!
