A lot more layers of pastel later for the texture of his fur. He still needs more contrast, but I need to get the chair in to see how it effects his tone and hue. The chair I'm also using a soft pastel first, obviously green, then working into it with a hard pastel pencil in a contrasting colour, red.
Over the weekend I was hoping that my son Michael would get over his illness, however we woke up this morning with him looking very pale, his temperature back up to 38c. So work is limited again, can't be helped, we have our fingers crossed for tomorrow, he's fed up with me now!
