A Thursday Nighter pastel
Thank you TR for sending me your great pastel canine work of your dog Bailey, the Irish Setter. TR has told me that Bailey's coloration is the original IR colors of red and white and is now rarely seen. He is a very sweet pooch!
TR has done an excellent job with the proportions and features. The eyes are very soulful and expressive, and the nose is perfect. I like how TR has used complimentary cool colors in the red fur and carried that blue into the whiter fur shadows. I would suggest also building up the background to a darker hue, maybe adding more of that same blue and some mid grey tones. A darker background would make the white fur stand out better. The top of the head should possibly be a bit taller and pointier - and could possibly be amended by working the background darker - but its not a big issue.
Lovely work TR - thanks for sharing!
