pastel on suede
private collection
actual size 20"X26"

This portrait was a little more difficult... the dark animals are just hard to get nice and rich looking. Plus, it seems that my computer is not in sync with my photo printer... the prints come out darker than I see them on the monitor. Eventually I will have to have some one come out and fix that. I can work around the problem until then. Working on the darker suede has helped with the blacks. But I am still trying some new surfaces... I just hate trying them on client work. If I am not happy, I end up starting over on the suede instead of trying to work out the problems.
