Same subject different medium

As you can see i decided to have a go at a horse using watercolors and pastels. It had been some time since I splashed some paint around. I'm hoping my paint comeback is going to continue.

My youngest wanted me knock out a pug picture for his bedroom like all parents you don't like to disappoint. Again done in pastels I'm sure the fildly areas would be easier with pastel pencils.

German Shepherd

A change from graphite was in order and I opted for the dusty messy pastels a method I haven't used so much. I'm pretty happy with the results on the most elegant of dogs the German Shepherd.
