I decided to give Canson another try. Smooth side this time and yes, it is significantly better, even I still need to learn about this paper to get the best from it.
This is an "Abby", portrait of Norwich terrier pup painted for my good friend and owner of the dog Christina.
Mainly done with Caran D'Ache portrait set of pastel pencils ( I LOVE all about those!)

C&C are welcome!

Thank You very much, Lee and Pam!
Lee, I normally would add a background, but this time I'm not going to... I like that style of pet portraits on colored support when support IS a background. Going to keep it simple this time.

Thank You to all! I have to agree - she is very charming. My good friend breeds and shows this breed of dogs, this is one of her youngsters. They are adorable and mischievous. All-in-one package!
