Ted is a real cutie Chris, well done you have captured his overwhelming fur beautifully! Love your colour choices in this image as well, you have a great gallery as well

Hi Chris just seen your kind comment on my Wednesday cat pastel portrait, thanks for that much appreciated

A gorgeous little chap Chris. Never heard of Ashby pastels, are they hard , soft or pastel pencils?

They are soft pastels Val. Endorsed by Vic Bearcroft and on sale at SAA

Thanks for the info Chris.

Ashby soft pastels on Velour. I have used this paper in the past and struggled. I purchased these Ashby pastels and they made such a difference. Ted is my daughters 20 week old Shih Tzu / Lhasa Apso crossbreed. I painted this as a moving home present. I hope she likes it.
