Welcome, in my first blog I showed a picture in preparation of 'Millie', a border collie. Here is the finished pastel pencil drawing.
Depicting black and white fur or feather presents the artist with a challenge. The lustre of a black coat is achieved with blues and violets but you have to look for them.
Again with the 'white', there are many other hues to be seen which describe the texture of the coat. The fur on the dog's chest needs careful attention; if you feel that you could shove your fingers into it, you've succeeded!
