Today I darkened down the darker areas of fur with black conte pastel. The mouth I gave a layer of pale blue covered with two different pinks; I'll come back to this at the end. The eyes: I used three different browns; again, I'll continue with the fur then go back and make a few more changes to them to sharpen the definition. For some reason I find noses incredibly difficult! It doesn't make sense, I know, because I find eyes and mouth ok, but I'm building the nose very slowly as velour paper isn't very forgiving with mistakes!

Jubilee is my latest commission; a working police dog and all round handsome chap. I'm doing him in pastels as I did 'Relax with a Max' - except on amber-coloured velour paper. The paper is A3, my favourite size to draw and he's attached to my new Reeves drawing board which I'm very pleased with! Here are some in-progress photos:
