Drawing for a Cause


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Since this drawing section has been created I thought I might add some drawings that I do to raise money for a no-kill Dog Shelter. The drawings are pastel portraits of pets. I charge $100 for one animal and $50.00 for each additional animal. People write their checks out to the Shelter so all proceeds go to the Shelter. The drawing is done on 11" X 17" pastel paper so the image is a nice size. I work in pastel since I draw well and pastels come in hundreds of different colors and blend easily. I thought this might give some of you ideas to raise money for causes close to your heart.

Dick

Hello Dick,

 

These last two are nice looking. I'm wondering what specific type of pastels you use - I haven't really used them much except for cheap student varieties and it seems you are getting some nice detail in your portraits. I'd love to see a photo of some of your pastels sharpened for use. I'm thinking they could be a good medium for quick renderings.

Thanks,

Mangus
