Wonderful Jan! The detail in your sky is wonderful and is balanced well with the ground. Love their mouths and noses!

I am so glad you posted here! Animals is a great forum and the artists are excellent!

BTW! Congrats on the commission!

too cute! i would love to see a hint of a fourth paw on the mostly white dog, tho. they're adorable!

thank you all, much appreciated.
As far as the fourth paw is concerned, this is how the hindquarters are supposed to be when in showing position. If I had painted the 4th paw it would either have been too narrow or too wide or a second option woud have been to show both dogs from a slightly different angle.
I'll bear this mind for the next one, thanks for commenting.
