On the Easel – Work in Progress of a Pet Portrait from a Photograph
I’d like to show you a few ‘work-in-progress’ scans of a dog portrait drawn in pastels:
from start to finish pastel painting.
Before the portrait is started I will usually provide customers via email with a mockup of the forthcoming portrait – the type of pose etc. If an ideal photograph is provided by the customer then a mockup may not be necessary. While the ‘pose’ is an important aspect of deciding on the mockup, so too is the background colour, which I will discuss with each customer.
All of my ‘work in progress’ is published on
Facebook – see you there?
