Pet Portrait in pastel.

"Abby", 12 x 9" on  paper.

This is an Abby, she is a Norwich Terrier girl. My dear friend Christina, Abby's owner,
asked me last to pint her a picture of her "baby". I decided it will be a good reason
to try out my new pastel pencils and my Canson paper what I was hording in my art attic.
This is very popular paper for pastels ac charcoal, but I normally ignore it,
because of my love to play with all sorts of underpainting.
However for Abby it was a good choice - simple, yet - delicate.
I'm pleased with result and it was nice to take "vacation" away from my Oils.
Most impotently - my friend is very pleased with this portrait too.
