Deerhound

This is the latest addition to my stock of artwork for sale at the Garrion Bridges Art & Antiques Centre.  “Olive”, the deerhound has featured on this blog before and her pastel painting is now waiting for a new owner.  I decided to pop this pastel onto a pre-cut mount, rather than having it framed, to give the buyer the opportunity to select their own frame, so we’ll see if this proves a good idea or not.  If so, I’ll try a few more – back to the drawing board….literally! 🤓

‘Deerhound’

Here’s a noble looking breed of dog which I thought might work well in soft pastel, given its fluffy coat.  I spotted this beauty with her owners in a car park in Ulverston and after a brief chat, they very kindly allowed me to take a few shots of her.  She seemed very used to having her photo taken and posed fabulously!  Hope I’ve done her justice.
