I drew these two pet portraits for Sharalee, in the Huge, Giant, Enormous swap.  One is her late, beloved greyhound, and the other 2 are of her beloved Italian greyhounds.  I sketched them out w/a pencil 1st, then colored them in w/oil pastels.  Then, blended in the oil pastels.

I have already told you this, but I love these!

They have such a folk art quality...and the eyes are so soulful...you have captured a lot of expression as well...

I am sure your swap partner was thrilled!

Those are so great! They remind me of my favorite style of Keene paintings.
