Caron you have managed to get the feel of texture to the fur and life within those eyes. Excellent work!

Thanks everyone..:) It was a nice change from cats and I cant believe how different it actually was to do versus the cats.
Yes, Bt, this is acrylic, my primary medium. I find now that I dont get to venture into the art projects anymore that I tend to stick with acrylic with doing the odd graphite just for change of pace.
I was so lucky with the shingles as I was in the beginning stages for the first week and knew what was to happen next. The first sign of any discoloration, I got put on meds. But the pain was still as intense..:(
The blue background is my favourite blue to work with, Paynes Grey, and I use it in every painting I do in some way or another. My second fav is prussian but not so much for backgrounds in this degree...

Beautiful Lab Caron, excellent eyes and muzzle. A very loving look. Heal quickly, there's a lot of doggies waiting to be painted. Have a great day. Pat
