Well I put the finishing touches to Molly today and sent scans for approval to the clients. Just heard back that they love it ... so another one done and dusted ... phew! Always a relief to get approval isn't it!
I've put the pastels away and cleaned my work area ready to tackle a couple of graphite commissions next. Amazing how far pastel dust travels :o)
This picture shows the colours more accurately than the close up
My camera has focussed to much on the blue tones in Molly's fur with this close up ... but disappointingly it doesn't really show up all the colours in her eyes - I used yellows, greens, blues and brown in addition to the obvious black and white - to achieve the glassy sheen that schnauzer eyes have. Never mind, I hope you like her -she was such fun to draw.
