April 2019 – Blues – The German Shepherd

Blue – The German Shepherd

Pastel & Color Pencils

by Elisabetta De Maria

Eli paints exceptional pastel/color pencil animal portraits that look photo realistic.  Blue is a German Shepherd that she has painted in multiple portraits and I’m pleased to offer this version of him carrying a favorite blue chew toy.

This design is painted with a variety of pastel pencils brands including Stabilo CarbOthello Pastel Pencils, Caran d’ache Pastel Pencils, Bruynzeel Design Colored Pencils, and Soft Pastel Rembrandt.  All are available from DickBlick.com

You should be able to substitute others you may already have by just referring to the step-by-step photos to choose a similar color.  Or if you prefer acrylic paints, you can convert the pattern  by choosing paint colors similar to the colors in the step-by-step photos.

Pattern includes 20 pages of colored step-by-step photos, supply list, instructions, and gray scale image to trace.  Eli has painted it on pastel paper or pastel board.  You can find a variety at DickBlick.com 

(If you make purchases following some of the links in this post, I may receive a small stipend, although it in no way effects the price you pay for your purchase.)
