Shar Pei twins – original dog pastel drawing

Shar Pei Twins

I have finally completed this drawing.  I have certainly taken my time on this, blending and re-blending to get the tones just how I wanted them.  I will be sad to see this pair go as I have got quite attached to them.  It is completed in pastel on Canson Mi Teintes paper.

The piece is available to purchase from Daily  Paintworks

Taking longer than I thought, but I’m enjoying every minute.  I’m beginning to layer the details starting from the left by refining the details, putting in the white and putting some fur details.

Worked a little bit more on my pastel Shar Pei drawing today.  This is a little larger than I usually do (11 x 14″) which has meant I need to order larger mounts and packaging for when I hopefully sell it.

Progress drawing on my Shar Pei twins.  What a great picture, they look like a pair of elephant babies.  When I saw the photo I immediately thought of my 3 tones of grey conte pastel pencils and knew it would make a wonderful drawing.  Progress is going well, currently I am just mapping out the 3 different colour tones (well 4 if you include white)
