Spyder a memorial
this is 11 x 15 Pastelmat and everything from pastel pencils to softies, Carbathelo to Derwent and Rembrandt to Shmicke! Lighting is not the greatest in this picture, there isn't a halo around her in real life'
She was a challenge for me as it was my first time trying to capture someone Else's dog and all I had was several poor photos to work from. It was also my first longer hair on an animal and my first attempt at white! Only about my 16th painting so, all and all I am pretty happy and the owners LOVE it!!! YAY!
I can't change anything at this point but C & C's welcome.

You did a wonderful job!
The fur is well rendered and I love her expression that you've captured.

Thank you Chammi, it did make me feel good it was my second painting to leave home and my first attempt to capture some one else's dog that I didn't know, so I am well pleased :)
