July 09

The last day of the month finds me about to start a new dog portrait, Having just finished two portraits of one dog (a memorial for a boxer dog) working from the same photograph, head alone /full body in graphite, I am ready for a change of mood and medium.
This next picture is not a commission as such but a thank you gift for my lovely friends and neighbours Sally and Paul who keep a check on my two, Maisie (Bengal cat) and Oskar (JRT) when I am not at home.
The portrait is a full body pastel painting of Buster their tri-coloured JRT, quite a bit larger than my Oskar, this dog is full of character and spirit and I am looking forward to creating this picture
