I was fortunate to be hired to paint this beautiful Southern Belle dog pastel painting in 2019.
Southern Belle Dog Commission Pastel Painting
Enjoy the time-lapse video of this dog commission pastel painting.
This beautiful Southern Belle dog was a rescue from Tennessee.
She is about three years old and is now living in a home filled with love.
Her dog markings and colors made this pastel painting a project I truly enjoyed and didn’t want to end.
Her soft eyes and alertness shows you how grateful she is to be in a safe home.
I was able to capture all of the different shades of browns and yellows of her soft silky fur by using over a dozen shades of ochre, browns, and yellows.
I used some blue sades with the black fur to give it some depth and a glowing effect.
The drawing took me about 20 hours to complete on an 8 x 10 on Pastelmat.
I have always enjoyed custom pet portraits and have been doing them for over ten years.
There was a point when I had to stop taking orders because I was booked for over two years and I felt that it was not fair to the person that hired me.
I have just started taking commission pet portraits again but only accept one order at a time.
This allows me to take the time needed to complete each order and capture their unique personalities.
Would you like a keepsake of your special loved one?
