Goldendoodle Painting pastel 11x14

'Goldendoodle' 11x14 pastel
I just finished my last mini workshop of the year. This class was on painting animals in pastel and I did this Goldendoodle for the demo. I chose him because of his color and fur texture would provide good lessons but also because he is just too cute! I would love to have a dog like this but I'm not too sure the cats would be happy about it!

We have a Goldendoodle... and the cats rule him (and play with him). He is such a sweet dog, although he looks more poodle than doodle. I will have to post a picture of him and try to paint him on my blog. He is very well behaved in the house, LOVES car rides and will walk all day next to me on a leash. He also LOVES to smile - full smile - shows all his teeth. Funny dogs. You really caught the faithful, a bit dopey, look they have.

He is adorable!
My brother owns a Goldendoodle named Sophie, she is very sweet and very cute!

Not only is it a beautiful painting but you captured that special animal innocence that so many painters fail to do. And you caught it in those tiny little fur covered eyes. And to me, that is what separates the painter from the true artist, and it's just one of the reasons why you're my favorite artist. I'm on a different computer and am having trouble getting this to post. It's me Susannah.
