Just beginning this 20 x 16 Pastel of my Great Dane - Gena. She is a wonderful dog and has my heart completely.
It is a full body painting and I have included a close-up of the area I'm working on at present. I tend to like to fairly finish off one section before moving to another.
I'm painting her in her younger years, as she is quite gray now around the muzzle. But, who knows, I may decide to age her appropriately...we'll see.
This size is larger than I usually work in Pastel, but since I have a liesurely amount of time on my hands, I figured why not go bigger
I am planning a background, though not sure just what it will be yet. Need to decide before I go any further. Maybe her laying in tall grass? Or a field of wildflowers?
