Blue Heeler - Xpost Animal & Wildlife Art

This is a 12x16 on grey pastelmat using mostly CarbOthello pastel pencils. This is a commission and will be delivering it next week so I was hoping you could provide some C&C to help it along to completion. Thank you for looking. Bob

Re: Blue Heeler - Xpost Animal & Wildlife Art

I could reach out and touch the dog's nose. It is remarkably three dimensional. I like that you kept the background simple. The only suggestion is to check your photo reference for the eye on the right. It may be fine, just recheck the shape and if it needs minor adjustments to the bottom half of that eye.

I noticed the life-like nose too! You did a beautiful job on this dog and I'll bet your clients will be thrilled!

Thank you for the comment Karen, I will take a look at that eye.

Thank you Donna. Once I recheck the eye as Karen suggested I think I will prepare the painting for delivery.
