First Pastels - Alsatian

Morning All 

Just getting ready for the Village Hall Coffee Morning
so wish me luck.

I had a bit of a play yesterday and came up with this.....

I followed the instructions from Vic Bearcroft using pastels. 

It is done on Velour paper which has a feeling of material. 

Got in a bit of a muddle with the eyes - but think they have come out ok. 

However not totally happy with the muzzle area 

BUT it is my very first effort with Pastels. 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for looking 

Best be off now and have a cuppa first
