Day one of my latest commission - a good start!

Pet portrait commission dog Ivan Jones pastel artist

Having finished a commission that I cannot reveal yet, I thought I'd share a few photos at the start of my latest commission - a lady and her dog.

Here I am working on the dog's eye - my wife Cath has done some videos of this which I hope to post to my YouTube channel in due course. I am using Cretacolour pastel pencils here, on Artspectrum Colourfix paper.
