Drawing a “Dog” in Pastels

The last two posts have been lessons on drawing dogs. And, of course, the ultimate goal is a portrait of your dog for over the mantle.

Assuming you have a mantle. And assuming you have a dog.

But if you’re going to hang something over your mantle, you might want it in color, right? So, I went looking for a lesson on how to draw dogs in color, and the best one I found for you is not a dog at all, but of a wolf. Close enough.

Besides showing nice color work, this video gives a little insight into how a different artist looks at the proportions of the “dog’s” face, so don’t miss that.

 

 

So, there you go: Beautiful color work and another lesson in drawing fur.

I hope some of you watched this video even if you have no interest in drawing animals because, even though it’s a short video, it’s also worth watching to see how this artist draws with pastels, which a lot of people do like to use.

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and the dog series. If you did —  and maybe learned something new — please share them with your friends. Thanks!
