A colorful pet portrait of a mixed breed dog named Shiver. She was a husky and corgi cross with bright blue eyes and large pointed ears! This drawing was made with pastel pencils on Ampersand Pastelbord, 11″ x 14″. Completed July 2018. She was mostly white, with a splash of tan around her left ear and side of her face. For this portrait, I decided to use purples and blues for the white portions of her fur, and warm reds, oranges, and yellows in the tan areas. The background is comprised of a mix of purples, magentas, and oranges to complement these colors, and really bring out the warm tones in her fur. The scanner unfortunately lost a lot of the blue fur detail, so a lot of subtle shading was lost. However, I feel like this is a good approximation of the real drawing.
