Another little experimental piece :) I love golden retrievers and was itching to draw one!
This time I gave painting with PanPastels a go. The medium really lends itself to a loose and painterly style, so I really focused on the shapes in the highlights and shadows to help pull this piece together. I did have to go in with some coloured pencil though to add a touch of detail and texture, but I'm pleased that I didn't get carried away and stopped where I did.
I think I'll be revisiting this reference photo again just because I love the dreamy atmosphere... Materials:
PanPastel painting set (10 colours) + applicators
Various coloured pencil
Pastelmat (Dark Grey)
