Spotlight on my first
This was the first portrait I ever produced for a friend's pet.
Produced in pastels on cartridge paper with final touches in 'Tipex'... well I found it difficult at the time to achieve a strong enough white highlight for the ear! Having no white paint at the time, I reverted to liquid paper. It worked pretty well wouldn't you say.
I am very comfortable using pastels and find the medium accommodating. However, I also use water colours, gouache, acrylics and oils.
