I'm still trying to find time to build up my portfolio of animal portraits, without a lot of success. There just aren't enough hours in the day or night to allow me time to complete works to sometimes even start them.
This is one of the my first portraits of a Great Dane. He's a bit colourful but still quite elegant in soft pastels on black mi-tientes paper.
I love the impact of images on black, but the black can distort colours sometimes needing layers to build slowly.
