Golden Retriever Portrait –  Final Scan

So, I just completed the pastel pet portrait of Golden retriever I’ve been working on lately. His name is Eddie and is painted on light grey PastelMat paper in size 30x25cm.

This portrait will serve as a great birthday gift for his owner.  I’m sure he will love his very special present!

Since this portrait is one of the smaller ones, I only had to scan it in two parts and puzzle the pieces together in Photoshop. Naturally I also had to edit the digital image in order to look as close to the original painting as possible.

PastelMat is now my new favorite pastel paper and I’m never going to use anything else for my detailed pastels.

I’ve also ordered more hard pastels (conté crayons) for the base and PanPastels to speed things up! I’m using hard pastels, pastel pencils and soft pastels for these portraits!

I will keep my introduction prices for 2 more months, so if you’re interested in a detailed pastel pet portrait, make sure to make your order soon for this low price!

The client chose to arrange the framing herself.
