Last night I demonstrated my pastel painting for an art group in Dorset. This very handsome black Labrador, Marmite, lives in Appledore with Emily and James. I knew this pose would work well as a demonstration, people love finding out how to create black with pastels without it being just black. The sheep worked well as a pastel portrait demonstration to explain animal fur and how to best create it in pastels. They’ll both be finished and displayed for Dorset Art Weeks.
