MY COMMENTS:
I had this idea for a fun ebay charity auction of a small expressive dachshound spotting a frog for the first time

(This is Coco- he is yet another homeless Doxie )



MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Overall how does it work?

Another painting by the lady with the big heart !
Just a suggestiong Stella ... if you could enhance the frog a tad as now it blends slightly with its background (the grasses). This would make a lovely diagonal liaison between Coco and the frog ...

Wonderful concept, Stella!!! The frog doesn't seem intimidated at all. ;) Bet he's prince charming in disguise. :cool: I always like the blue you use in your darks for shadows. Great rendition of the dog - those are the sweetest little dogs. We had one when I was little and I just loved him to death -- his name was....yes....Weiner. :wink2:

What?! I was only around four or so...what did you expect?!

Stella, you do such wonderful work :) The Pup seems positively lively and engaged...I'm thinking maybe a bit more shadow beneath the frog to ground him a bit more. Besides for that, I wouldn't change a thing.

Hi Stella, adorable, works well, Happy you posted the closeup. Your pup looks very livey, his eyes are marvelled by the froggy.

Stella,
Great idea
You've captured the playfullness allright from the little teckel
The fact that you've depicted the frog 'en profile' makes the frog rendition a little bit like an illustration I think.
