Managed to grab around an hour today, so broke out the pastels and had a bit of fun with them again. Nothing too remarkable, but nevertheless a good learning experience. Some practice is better than no practice after all. Dug out a nice reference of a dog, and focussed instead on the nose and bit of the muzzle. Some of the highlights are a little dark, but I do like the richness of the colour and the depth of the fur that’s already happening. Not bad for a very quick sketch I think. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back to a more normal routine reasonably soon, but until then I’ll continue with these small sketches for now.
