Amazing softness to his fur Patricia you sure are master with the pastels,  :smitten: ......makes me wish I had my pastels with me :(    (but my Nomadic lifestyle only allows for my trusty pencils and one other medium in my suitcase,  this time around its pen and watercolours, pastels have had their turn  ;D)

 :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:  so very much EmmaLee, Win and Mea for all your encouraging comments on my Pug painting. I think if you love a subject which you paint, you will do well at it and I love dogs. Growing up in SA, we were never without dogs ever. When my husband decided to come back to Canada, we brought our dog with us which cost an arm and a leg but it was worth it. Sadly she died after two years here but then she was up in age (14 years old) and we have never replaced her. However,  my eldest daughter has two huge dogs, a Bull Mastiff and a Boxer, sadly she lost her Boerboel (SA breed) two years ago so while I don't personally own any dogs, I still have them in my life.


Win, I understand how difficult it is to carry one's hobby with them especially if you are flying for you are not only limited by weight but also by what you can take into the cabin with you.  Wherever I go, I carry all my art paraphernalia  with me because to have anything confiscated or lost is expensive. Anyway, the pastels will always be there so when next you travel, they will have their turn to be used.


Mea, with regard to the fur, I just follow Dennis' lead and I watch how he lays his strokes into the painting which is very gently and I think that this is the secret to achieving a "soft" look.


Thanks once again for your encouragement.
