I have been painting my daughter's 3 dogs, she chose the background and has hung them as a group. I have only painted two other dogs. All 3 are pastel and about 12" X 15" on colourfix sanded card. Any suggestions?? 713212

Very nice, looks like a Kelpie as top one, Australian Cattle dog second one and Border Collie last one? Very nice expressions, I know your daughter will be happy with them. She likes the herding breeds, :-), I do too.

Thanks for the comments, I appreciate it. Just one thing, she has a new Border Collie puppy, he's 8 weeks old. He's next on my painting list.

Patricia. Delightful portraits. I am sure your daughter is absolutely delighted with them. Love those super alert eyes in the second one.
