Nice to see you, Mary Ann, I love WC! too.
I like your painting, is her hair inked?
The dog looks like a greyhound pup--a lean eating machine, I like him. He's a young'un and a bit scared of how high he is.

I think you might add a bit of the pup's color to that shape in front of her neck, so his shape integrates w/hers.

And add a bit of the blue to the b/g opposite side of her, near the shirt shoulder and arm would be good, to carry-through. But not w/a harsh line. You might want to wash back the hard line on your blue so it is softer.

Fookie, the hair is inked with a black caligraphy pen. The background I added as an afterthought, I was planning to leave it white. Thank you for your input.

Thank one and all for their comments.
