Just found this memorial portrait on my computer and thought I'd share!

Very good! Lovely curls and touches of red in the fur. I like the pattern too, the way it's muted so the focus stays on the dog. Thanks for sharing! :)

Lovely portrait, Robin. What medium and size is your work?

When did you finish it?... composition and color handling is good :)

Robin - welcome to the Animal & Wildlife Forum! :wave: I don't think you've posted with us before have you?

Lovely Cocker Spaniel portrait! Is it watercolor? I like the way you've painted all those lovely curls and you've also brought the colors of the sofa into his coat too. A lovely Spaniel portrait!

My very first dog was a Cocker Spaniel - I received him for my 5th birthday and he finally went to the Rainbow Bridge 15 years later (that was a very long time ago!) - so I always still have a special love for Cocker Spaniels.
