Very well done Ray, Bonzo must be a beautiful dog and so is the painting. :)

Ray, I like your sense of humor. Quick question: is mounting board the same as mat board? Thanks and keep drawing, they are all beautiful.

 :thankyou: Jill, Louisa, Paula, Peggy, Bellarina and Lillian on your encouraging comments

 :thankyou: Diane and the answer to your question is Yes it's the same board that you use to frame your pictures you can get it in various colours so I picked a colour close to the colour of the subject  hope that helps.  Ray

Thanks for your answer Ray. I may try the mat board with pastel sometime in the future. Pastel paper seems to thin to me, I've been using watercolor paper but would  like a colored paper at times.

Very new newbie here lurking and learning from you all. 

Ray! It's so lovely.  The ear texture is amazing....I can just feel how soft and velvety those ears are to the touch.  They pull me inside the drawing.  I guess that is the point!

Thank-you for posting him.

Blessings!
Cheryl
