pastel portrait of a cocker spaniel

No. 28, 30 Friends in 30 Days

Chester

Chester is my friend Sally’s dog. He’s gone now, but of course, he was the best dog ever. I enjoyed painting him, partly because I got to try out a new kind of pastel paper and partly because he’s a dog! I love dogs.

Thank you, Sally, for sending me Chester’s beautiful face to paint!

No progress pics today because I was on the road while working on Chester’s portrait.

This is my 30 Friends in 30 Days series. Each day I take a friend’s selfie and make a pastel painting from it. Then I post it to ebay at auction for 7 days. Follow my progress as I learn to paint pastel portraits with a little help from my friends.
