Oodles of Poodles




Oodles of Poodles, pastel by Emma Kaufmann


I've been in something of a pastelly, summery type of mood what with our balmy weather so I did this little collection of pastel poodles. They are awfully elegant and look like the type of pooches Audrey Hepburn might have had in Breakfast at Tiffany's and she might have sat in a fancy restaurant and waved her long cigarette lighter at the waiter and demanded they be given a pillow to sit on and a warm bowl of milk.

Then I also got carried away painting a giant intergalactic cupcake whizzing around the sky. It was great fun to paint. Here's a little video of it:





Here's the finished painting using washes of watercolor and acrylic inks on paper. I had fun using my new white fineliner pen to create all the little stars in the background. I was using the Sakura Pentouch Paint markers and found they did a wonderful job even over a dark background. I do get so excited when I use new products for the first time. Don't you?






Also I would be grateful if you could vote for my funny farting unicorn Valentine's day greeting card in a competition  Please vote for it by clicking HERE and I will be eternally grateful.

  3. The pastel poodles really touches my heart. I love dogs, no matter the breed or color. Also your cupcakes with the white pen work is really lovely. Since it's lunchtime, it makes my mouth water.
