Here's a commission I did for Christmas. It's their pride and joy, "Ruby". One, as she is now (in basket) and one of her when she was younger.

c&c welcome

Thankyou for the lovely comments :-) It was my first paid commission and my first time painting dogs on acrylic/canvas.
It took me ages to get the colour right. The lighter one, I initially had far too red/dark - as I was using burnt sienna, but I managed to correct it with yellow ochre. It's interesting how her coat has darkened from when she was young to as she is now
