Our Regal Beagle

This is another attempt at capturing my wife’s beloved beagle - Shiloh. It is done with soft pastel sticks and Stabilo Soft Pastel pencils on Strathmore 400 9x12 pastel paper. I’m quite happy with this and my family says I definitely captured her well. My next step is to invest in better pastel paper as many have suggested since I feel I will enjoy doing more with pastels.

I love this. Your work is beautiful. I especially love his pose, it’s so endearing.

Thank you Rhonda. She loves to sit on the back of the sofa and look out the window. I got some good photos of her looking at my wife and did this from one of those pics. Beagles are great dogs and this one is exceptional.

She is so cute, and yes, I think you captured her and her facial expression well! Can’t wait to see your next pastel piece! :smile:

Another great Job. Love it.

Wow - first of all the beagle is adorable and you did a fantastic job. I am also blown away by the detail of the shades in the background. Wonderful work.

Thank you! Seeing improvements always make me encouraged to keep going. I hope to have something worth posting in the future.

Thank you! This one made me happy with the effort.

Thank you for your comment! I wasn’t sure if the background would detract or look off as I created it.
