My son saw this piece that I am working on, and he commented on how difficult it is to do animals in pastel. He had to do a German Shepherd in pastel as well when he was in art school, and he still remembers how long it took, and how much work it was!

However, that being said, I just love this dog! Here you see the first of many layers to achieve all the different colouring that this dog had. There are times when I step back from working to see what he looks like, and I feel like I could reach out and stroke his fur. I am hoping to get lots more done on him next week...maybe even finish him. That would be fantastic. :-)
