1st and 2nd Stage

Yesterday I started up a new portrait! This pastel drawing is of dog Faxe in size 22x22cm, drawn on white Canson Mi Tintes Touch paper. I always complete each pastel portrait with only black and then I start to add some color.

These portraits are created in a tinted style and that is why I take this approach when drawing. Otherwise I would just end up adding too much color for this style. This is how far I’ve got yesterday, however today it’s already completed and I will scan it later today and upload the final scan to this blog soon.
