All A Cowboy Needs WIP

My latest pastel, All A Cowboy Needs. This is Jake and Mulie, these two had a bond like I have never seen between a dog and a person. I photographed them at the Artist Ride in South Dakota. I work on a suede board and soft pastels, this gives a soft look to the painting. I put a lot more detail in the background than I usually do, but I wanted to give a look of "openness" to the scene. This is a small piece, 10x12, so it should not take too long...famous last words, right?
