I've painted quite a few Jack Russel Terriers. This one of "Pepper" has always been my favourite.

love the extreme detail in the snout and then a gorgeous faded background. As a pet painter myself, I bow to your prowess!!

Thank you everyone for your kind remarks. The bit I enjoyed the most was those lovely thick furry ears.
I just found out that Pepper died recently, but not before fathering a couple of litters of little Peppers.

Lovely painting for a lovely dog!
Which beautiful memory of Pepper its maitre can keep due to this picture and your talent... What remains to be done now, you have to immortalize its sons!

Thank you all. I took the reference for this painting by standing Pepper on a low wall. I crouched down so I was level with, or maybe a bit below, his eyes. Just enough so the highlights appeared in them. He was such a poser! Any of the photos I took would have made a good painting but this one was special.

What a great Jack Russell! You've captured the lively personality, and I love the lighting and background!

Thank you everyone. Chris, "lively" doesn't even begin to describe these little dogs. They never seem to stop moving do they?
