Bella Finito!

Bella, 2010
Pastel and Colored Pencil on Arches

The Final outcome is one that I am quite happy with. I think the backdrop adds a nice spatial element to the drawing. I had a great time rendering the black tones with punches of red, olive, and blue.  It feels great to be drawing, and I think I should do it more often.


  1. Love the Bella drawing. I like that it has depth. One of things you always tell us is to incorporate color into black objects because a black object is never flat black.
    I also like that this post is a follow up to the first one, it was nice to watch it develop.
    I think your friend will be more than pleased with the outcome.

  2. I am still lovin' the eyes they really pop since the scarf has sort of the same hue....... I simply adore the doggie <3
