Two of these I did some time ago and one just recently, I am half way through a tiger pastel painting at the moment, he’s quite a large one compared to what I have been doing lately. Hopefully will have him finished the end of this week.

  1. In this group the collie grabs me. I like how you finished off his ruff ( flowing). I also like his inquisitive look.

    • Hi lesliepaints, I really like him to, I did this one from an art book I had, it was a practice one doing the pastels on sanded paper. Its a great paper to work with as long as you remember not to use your fingers to blend anything. The first couple of times I used it took a lot of skin off the tips of my fingers, didn’t realise it til the next morning when I woke very sore, then found a tip to always use bandaids on your fingertips. Costs a lot in bandaids but saves a lot of pain. Haha, no fingerprints for awhile, would have been good if I had to be fingerprinted for anything, wouldn’t have been any.

  2. These are all beautiful. I want to pluck off one of the tomatoes and bite into it. Delicious and looks like it would be perfectly juicy. You’re inspiring me…sounds like You are painting up a storm. Almost all of my work I have posted is unfinished. Time to dive back in…..

    I didn’t read the whole firebug thing yesterday. What in the world is a firebug? Doesn’t sound like a fun being to have around.

    Hope this day was cooler and Cheers and Namaste. 🙂

    • Blissbait you sound like me, I have so many unfinished ones laid out on the spare bedroom. I am beginning to realise if I don’t finish something the same day, it has a tendency to stay that way for awhile. Bad habit of mine. I hope I do get to finish most of them, what I’ve started doing is to take one out each day and even if I only add a bit more to it, it will eventually get finished. (one day)
