Here is what I have done so far on this Pastel Pet Portrait commission which is to be a Christmas gift. (I have learned that it is safe to post it here.) Still a long way to go but she really is beginning to come to life now.
I have worked a fair bit on the mouth eyes and nose and I am still applying darks on the fur before whites go over the top. You will see allot of different colours at the moment such as greens, blues and purples. Some of these colours will show in the finished portrait but they will not be so obvious. My camera has not captured the true colour of the background again but it is a lighter warmer wheat colour.
I have modified the the shape of the ear but I will probably adjust it a little more before completion.
