Nugget, a Pastel Pet Portrait

SOLD
NUGGET, All Grown Up
Boxer pet portrait
pastel on Mi Tientes paper
8x10 inches
artist Vernita Bridges Hoyt
You have probably figured out by now that I am on a mission to paint commissioned pet portraits to help Boxer rescue organizations. The two I typically try to help are both in Texas: Lone Star Boxer Rescue in the Houston area, and Legacy Boxer Rescue in the Dallas area. If a person wants the donation to go to a different organization, I am happy to send it as long as the rescue group is a registered 501(c)3 charity organization. I donate 25% - 100% of the sale price (less shipping fees) to the charity depending on the size of the painting. 

I am posting some images below of the painting of Nugget to show you the progression of the pastel painting.

Step 1: Line drawing and first pastel strokes

Step 2: All local color applied over drawing


Step 3: Detail developed as more pigment was added



Step 4: Eyes completed


Step 5: Painting sprayed with pastel fixative which darkens colors

Final Step 6: Color refreshed by adding highlights of pastel pigment
This painting was shipped to the owner after adding those final color highlights of pastel.
