Default Pastel portraits

Hello! I like to work in pastel (less cleanup than paint, Lol!) and I'd rather draw animals than people. Don't have too many pieces of my art in electronic files but I have a few... (Is it okay to show cat portraits? These are portraits of cats we've since lost to the Rainbow Bridge.) The horse was mine, too - coming up on the third anniversary of losing him. Hope the links work!

This was Ghost, so named because she would disappear if anyone looked at her (a feral rescue). She became a very loving cat.


This was Tobias, he was dumped and living on nachos at the local rec center. We took him home.


Oh look! A dog portrait! A commissioned piece, husband wanted something to show who really runs the household.


This was my Morgan gelding, Rocket. A friend stuck sunglasses on him, so I put him at the beach.

Very, very beautiful work. Great lighting on all three, the black horse really shines.

Thanks for the compliments, everyone! Hmmmm, I don't know why the dog portrait isn't showing up... I can see it. Maybe this one will work better:



This is a pencil portrait of Patch. She was my first dog and I lost her on Jan. 23rd after seventeen years. She was always my favorite subject to draw. Hope it shows up.

Thanks.
Yup, just your basic No. 2 pencil on smooth board. Patch was a wonderful dog and she went everywhere with me. She had a funny, expressive face and I miss her.
