Moose, The Huntaway! by ArtBYbeverly Moose, The Huntaway! by ArtBYbeverly
This is my very first attempt at painting an animal portrait! It was done mainly in pastel pencil, with pastel sticks for finishing touches.

I consider this a "study/practise" piece, for future animal portraits, or wildlife paintings.


This painting is dedicated to you Vin :iconapplemac12: for your continuing support, , your friendship, your generosity, your kindness, your lovely nature and for your wonderful, amazing photograph's! Thank You also, for giving me permission to paint 'MOOSE' your beautiful Huntaway pure bred dog!

Here is more of Vin's lovely dog, Moose:

Well done Beverly, maybe the contrast is a bit too high, but it's very difficult drawing black animals :icondoggyplz:

Thanks Sarah, and yes you're right...the camera didn't take a great photo of it, there is some dark blues' going from the top of his head, down along the back of his neck much like I saw from the photograph...but it doesn't it show it well at all :(

I wish now, I had left the background out as well, but these are all learning curves :)

Yes that true, I always find it hard to make good photo's of black animals, the same goes for photo's of drawings of black animals.

Aww, Bev you did a great job on Moose. What a beautiful dog he is. I see a very gentle soul in his eyes in the one photo with the stick in his mouth.

Thanks Jewels, I tried to depict him just as he was, playful and a bit wet and sandy from the beach. In hindsight, I should have just painted his portrait, and left the background black...but anyway, on to the next one lol :)

Yes, I like the other photo too and originally I was going to do that one...but the photo was a little bit blurry when I looked at it up close, and thought it was a bit much to tackle for my first animal portrait lol :)
