Last year (my freshman year in college), I was introduced to pastels and fell in love with them. I unintentionally ended up doing a series of pet portraits, one of them being a class assignment and the other two being commissions! I have done some portraits of my dogs in other mediums and I am obviously still learning the ways of pastel. I love drawing my own pets, as well as other people's pets and hope to do more in the future, whether it be in pastel or paint!
Unfortunately I don't own a camera (can't buy one on a college art kid budget) so I had to take these with a camera phone. I also took the pictures before they were untaped and framed. Sorry!
