Well,after a hectic two years renovating a cottage,and not having much time to on here,I'm back !!
I've been concentrating on wildlife painting during the last year,(when I had the time),but had to momentarily drop it to paint these pet portraits in the last month or so.
All are painted in acrylic using a sort of water colour technique,whereby some areas of the paintings are a single wash,and other areas several opaque washes.
Hope you like them .

They are all just absolutely fantastic. When I first looked at them I thought they were the photos you were working from, then I realised they were the actual paintings. I so so like them. :thumbsup: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Fantastic! If you hadn't said they were paintings, I would have thought they were photographs. They are beautiful!

As always, Julian, your paintings astound me. The use of light and the detail is amazing, especially with acrylics and washes. Wow. Nice to see you back on here!

These are completely stunning. The sunlight on the chocolate lab is so true I can FEEL it. Beautiful.
