Blitz the Pudlepointer
8 x 8 soft pastel on sanded paper

Blitz the Pudlepointer (I love that name!) was the winner in my Facebook contest for a free pet portrait. (By the way, please go give my page a LIKE. I'd really love you, and thank you.)
I cannot tell you how much fun it was to paint this gorgeous fella. I love the soft window light as he gazes out at who knows what. It is definitely the type of painting I love to work on!
This was also the first time I worked with sanded paper. I love how it takes a lot of pastel layers without being fussy. Since I love to work in a lot of layers with my oil paints, it's definitely suitable for my style of work. I'll definitely be working with this again.
I hope you enjoy Blitz the Pudlepointer! If you want to inquire about your own pet portrait commission, visit my website by clicking HERE.
