It's been way too long since my last interaction on Wetcanvas, life has taken over rather:) So I thought I would break the ice so to speak, by posting this recent pastel I had the pleasure to paint of a truly beautiful animal.
No critiques please on this one as it's complete and with it's new owner.

I'll try not to be a stranger in the future:) http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/11-Mar-2017/123047-SAFFEY_PASTEL_WATERMARKED.jpg

Welcome back John! Good to see you back with us!:wave:

Outstanding painting and so very beautifully rendered! You have caught the emotion and the character of this beautiful dog. I feel as if I'd like to give him a hug - love this painting!

Thank you all for your lovely comments!
I forgot the protocol, this was made with Unisons and a variety of pastel pencils on Pastelmat. :)

I love the idea of including the dog's toy!

Thanks again for all of your encouraging comments, Libby, the toy idea was the dog's owners.Sadly it is a posthumous portrait.
