Dog in oil pastels

I’ve take a couple of Matt’s courses in the pastels for animals. I definitely need some pastel pencils to get more detail in certain areas. But please let me know what else I can fix, improve, change. Thanks

I think to show more of the dog would be something to consider.
Also The brown around the eyes I think could be blended in more and some more highlights in the eyes. The rest is done well.

Sweet dog, difficult picture. No highlights in the eyes, maybe you can try and add those. The nose has lights, your contrast looks good. And the fine hairs. I hope you will continue, Albertine

I forgot: you mention oil pastels and you would like more pastel pencils. It looks like you are talking about two materials that do not go well together. Soft pastels with pencils. Maybe you meant soft pastels?, s6, Albertine

Thank you I’ll Do that

Didn’t realize that the pencils were a different medium compared to the oil pastels and wouldn’t work. I’ll stick with oil pastels for now Thanks for the advice :slight_smile:
She is a sweet dog. She’s a Jack Russell so she only knows being at energy levels of 10 or sleep
