Head study of ‘Rowan’ a very handsome Australian Shepherd. Animal Portrait in Soft Pastels 11.23.2012
Another exercise from Will Kemp Art School, focusing on achieving warm and cool tones and blending from 2 colors + white. Deceptively more difficult than I anticipated, but an eye opener as well. Great lessons in this little simple painting.
I was asked for a portrait of this fine young male Australian Shepherd named Cruis’. This drawing was performed in conte’ crayon for the portrait, soft pastels in the background and to tint the tongue.
