09/10: MEG (SALUKI) FINISHED

I've heard back from the client that she loves the portrait of Meg, so no changes needed. For personal reasons Meg is very important to her, but what I loved to hear was that despite her glamourous appearance, Meg is a bit of a 'tomboy' and loves rolling in the mud etc - she's a 'proper dog'

Well done Sue another in the bag, you are certainly knocking them out at a rate these days!
Is this a pastel or cp? either way it is beautiful! x

Wonderful! Wonderful that it's well-received and wonderful that it's finished! Great job!

Thanks Kay and Jan.
This is pastel on pastelmat paper Kay - getting the hang of it again now :o)
I've just bought a pad of Sennelier pastel card from SAA (turned up today) and it feels really weird to the touch. Can't wait to try it

You have a wonderful talent. Very enjoyable to see what you create.

Thanks Jo and Leslie.
I've just had a look at your amazing cp work Leslie. I've put my cps to one side in favour of pastels for pet portraits and graphite for my Xmas children portraits. After the Xmas orders are finished I have lots of ideas for coloured pencil stuff (for me) - I've been inspired by Alyona Nickelsen's book - Colored Pencil Painting Bible :o)

Hi Sue,

This is wonderful, I love your choice of coloured paper, and the texture you create in the fur.
