12" x 12" Original Pastel
Not For Sale
This is my latest commission - Sofie. Sofie is a beautiful Miniature Poodle who belongs to the wife of my boss.
I almost panicked at first glance and thought "oh no - she is black - how will I get the details?" I knew better though. Sure enough as I began to study her and paint her I was excited to find she had lots of beautiful colors and shades of blues, browns, rusts, pinks and grays that enhanced her black coat - so I tried to emphasis those colors to get the details and depth needed.
Isaiah 32:17 (King James Version)
17And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.
Oh Karen, I love Sophie, I'm sure your client will absolutely love this. Perfectly painted! Congrats!
hmuxo - thank you so much! Yes my client was very pleased - used the word "beautiful" and said it was exactly what she wanted. Made my day for sure when a client says that!
Sophie is just lovely! You certainly have those pastels down pat don't you. Love the little ribbons in her fur too. Great detail and fur texture!
Thanks! I do love working in pastels. Thanks for dropping in.
That's amazing. You are very talented.
Amanda - thank you for your kind comments and thanks for visiting my blog.
Beautiful, Karen! Sophie is done to perfection! You truly succeeded in capturing all the great colors in a "black" coat.
