Here's my paint a long.  I was too scared to go dark so my portrait is much too light.  However, I enjoyed the class immensely.  Thank you Dennis.

Well here is my first pastel drawing of a dog. It was fun.  :congrats: Dennis you did a fantastic job of slowing down. It was easier to keep up with you. Your speedos must of been in the washer.  :2funny:

Natalie and Patricia great job.  O0 O0 O0 O0

All three of you Ladies have done a tremendous job with the dog portrait - and that for a draw-a-long  :yippee: :clap: :clap: :clap:
Natalie, The right ear edging is not sharp enough - it should be the same as the left ear.

Patricia, apart from the blue cast (camera?) the pupil in the right eye should be in the same position as the left eye. Try not to put the highlight right in the center of the pupil move it to the top right of the pupil to look the same as the left eye O0

Nina, the only comment I have is that I am missing the small pink spot for the tear duct in the left eye.
However, I can't guarantee just how long the speedo will stay in the washer :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

 Natalie, Nina & Patricia  Wonderful work on the dogs and to do them as a draw-a-long is astonishing you should be very proud of yourselves and Dennis has given you valuable advice   Well Done   Ray
