I’ve been quite busy with commissions lately and one of my recent favourites was Reggie. It was such a great photo to work from and he’s an absolutely gorgeous young Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
I decided that a dark grey pastelmat would work well for Reggie’s portrait and I used my pastel pencils for this commission and I’m so happy with the finished piece.
I like to use coloured pastelmat for portraits, my favourites are dark grey, light grey and light blue but I also love to use white, especially when its a white subject.
I thought for a bit of fun I’d compare my drawing with the photo and I was quite pleased with how it looked.
