I think it's coming along beautifully too! The red background is bold, and I think will set the dog off nicely. Keep posting, would love to see the end of this one ;)

I have to agree. This is a great start to what I think will turn out to be a great painting.

I particularly like the way you have already got the light catching the sheen of the coat on the top of the dogs head.
I look forward to following this one.

Here it is finished. I am fairly new to painting and I am liking trying new things because I have found my peppers and this one to be very gratifying. I already have two people that want one of their dog. :D

I'm not surprised you are already getting requests for pet portraits. This one is very well done - love the composition and background. :clap: Pet portraits are very much a lucrative market - mine are all done on rocks. I am struggling to make the transition to the flat surface. I've never had to think about backgrounds before ... thanks for showing this one!

Oh sorry, Forgot to ask if perhaps you would be willing to xpost this in the animal forum?
