Weekend pastel pet portraits

Hello everyone. I spent a very pleasant weekend painting these portraits in pastel.  

This is Sam, a female Labrador/Retriever who we used to look after when the owners went on holiday

These 2 cheeky monkeys are Basil and Peppa, they are our friends' dogs. I have painted this one as a gift for them.

Both paintings were created using a mixture of:
Sennelier soft pastels
Inscribe soft pastels
Derwent pastel pencils
Hanhemuhle Velour Pastel paper

Thank you for visiting

Hello again. I thought I would share two more pastel pet portraits that I completed yesterday.  The first one is a commissioned Spaniel portrait and the second one is a painting of my beloved Border Collie,  Murphy, who passed away 6 years ago. I hope you like them:

A busy few days doing what I love

Hello everyone. Over the past few days I have been working on various pastel pet portraits, a challenge card (docrafts) and a challenge painting (pure watercolour) all things I really love doing.  So here they are:

This top pastel portrait is my stepson's puppy, Missy.  I have painted her as a gift for him 

 These two little cuties are for a commission

This is the card I made for a challenge over on Docrafts

This final piece is the painting for the challenge on the Pure Watercolour website

This little piggy is going to the groomer

The owner of the dog groomers where some of my paintings are displayed asked me to paint a portrait of her pot bellied pig, Winston,  who sadly passed away last year. Having never painted a pig before I found it quite challenging but hopefully it will pass.

So here's Winston
