Work in Progress - Colored Pencil

colored pencil
This is a work in progress. It has been awhile since I worked on black so I decided to draw Halen, my Ibizan hound sleeping on the rug at the glass door. Catching the right light with the colored pencils is fun but the shaded area is a little tricky. I want to show that the rest of the body is there but not too much to take away the dramatic shadows. I am working on this in between commissions and competition pieces.

This is a painting of my granddaughter getting ready to go to her homecoming dance. It was juried into the Hanover Area Arts Guild 2nd Annual Regional Juried Show.
