Marina,
I like your pug in a rug.  He looks quite proud of himself.

Juan - nice to see you message.  Good to have you back.

Did I miss it in the lesson plan somewhere, or here on the forum...??  I've been looking everywhere for the list of colours used in the pug portrait and can't find any. HELP? Please don't say "use your imagination"...that inevitably leads to disaster for me.

Unfortunately there is no colour list. The reason is that in most of the kits the colours are not designated and also if they do have paper sleeves those sleeves get removed and you are left with only the bare sticks. Study the pastelists and you will notice that all their boxes are full of pastel sticks without a single piece of paper on them. They all pick the nearest colour required by sight.


Don't try to match my colours exactly, just choose the closest you have. The exact colours are NOT that important: the techniques are. All the pugs do not have exactly the same colour anyway.


Don't rush. Take it slowly. You CAN do it  O0 :flowers:  Post your finished painting here in this lesson.

 :wave: Hi Mairex, and a big  :bigwelcome:

You will do fine with your pug, just take your time and follow Dennis´ steps as you go along. The best part of these lessons is you can pause, stop, back up, repeat.... I´ve done it many....many times.  ;D   I have watched this lesson many times, still haven´t painted it... but I did do one of the neighbour´s dog!  :2funny:
Jump right in and have some fun with it, you´ll be surprised how good you already are.  O0          :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:
Cheers, Val
