pastels on sandpaper

My inspiration was the masterful pastel work of Edgar Degas. While studying Degas, I spent many hours just looking at his work. His classical training and accomplished skills shine in his work and I am encouraged to continue my  discipline of building and improving my skill set. I feel pleased with the influences that came through on this pastel painting.
My design strategy was to create a still life that in a small way conveyed the influence of Degas using the grey hound figurine's delicate form to emulate the ballet dancers and the horses.
My Work process was pastels on sandpaper.
