A year ago I lost my best friend and cuddliest dog ever. We had him since he was 8 weeks old and he definitely was a huge part of our family. It has taken me this long to draw him again because it was too hard to sit and stare at his picture but I thought that the time is right to draw him properly in colour like he deserves. I chose this pose because it reminds me of that smile that only a staffie has and of his squinty eyes when he is sitting in the sun (which was his favourite thing to do). The hardest image I have ever had to draw so far but I am so glad that I have done it. I am loving the canson pastel mat with my Faber-Castell pastel pencils and my Rembrandt pastel sticks. I can’t wait for my next pastel portrait.
