Another great version of this popular image. This is really lovely, you've caught the concentration on his face well and the water and reflections are very realistic.

Guilli - Another one - how have you found the time this weekend? You have put us to shame with such detailed studies. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
you have all of the wonderful elements of this great ref here and in oil pastels too. You will have to tell me the secret of detail without smudge! I put my OP's away in disgust for awhile as that was all I seemed to be doing. I blamed it on me being left handed but please don't tell me you are too?! :o

Joy and Nicole :wave:thanks everyone for your comments and claps,first off it was a great ref pic,2nd i have been there in days gone by with rufus an irish red setter and then with my labrador ben,so it brought back many memories.
Nicole,as a matter of interest i take it that it is a water droplet on Busters ear,or does he wear an earring :D
Maureen,whats QR mode when it's at home,i can never guess what the initials stand for :)
Christine,Gotcha :D yes i am a lefty,and i work right to left across the paper lol.
