Labrador Retriever Dog Portraits in Conté Pastel by Katja Turnsek

Labrador Retriever dog portrait in Conté

Dog Portrait Commission Info

I created this portrait year 2013 in size 40 x 35 cm. The subject on this conté drawing is beautiful Chocolate Labrador retriever "Vitta". I used three colors to create this portrait and the back color helped me create the darkest shadows.

When I first started out, I used only a brown but soon realized I wanted to create more depth in the drawing. The labrador was commissioned as a gift, by someone I've known for years. All my conté crayon portraits are drawn on Canson Mi Teintes Touch paper. If you like the style of these soulful pet portraits, do not hesitate to contact me to have your own portrait done.
