Paddy. Dalmatian pastel

Paddy. Pastel drawn onto blue Clairefontaine Pastel mat using a selection of Faber Castell, Stabilo Carb-o-thello pencils and Contè stick pastels. I thought using the blue background would give the white fur a lift being mostly white. The dogs alert expression was achieved as he was staring at a cup cake in the owners hand. Paddy’s a sneaky thief regarding food. Deb


Great looking dog. Very realistic.

Fantastic. I love it. Caught the moment perfectly! :grinning::+1:

I love this. Your choice of background is wonderful! Hopefully he got a bite of that cupcake!

Thank you Greg. I try to make the picture like the photo I copy from. Deb

Yes, Paddy did have a few crumbs of the cake. Deb

This is adorable and lovely. Love the eyes.

Thank you Denise. I wanted to draw Paddy because of his wall eye as it’s a little different.

It looks like a photograph!! Well Done!
