This is fabulous, the execution is superb! The composition is a joy! Everything is calculated to add to the interest of the drawing. I like for example how the light pools on the floor under the drapery. Color and interest is added there and it keeps our eye from following the drapery line out of the drawing. The expression on the yellow dogs face is sooooo cool. I have seen that look in that type dogs eyes a thousand times! Two small items, one of which I really cant say why...the tension created between the two dogs by the space between them. I keep thinking that the darker dog might be drawn in just the bit closer to the yellow dog? As much as anything I am thinking of the close proximity to the edge of the drawing. I hate it when mats and frames impinge too closely on images. The other thing is the spot of greenery out by the deck. The edges are too hard on the leaves and the color too bright, and the contrasts too great. That being so it is like an interfering child with a loud voice! The drawing is just super Belle. Welcome to the WC!

Excellent work! The composition is a strong point just as much as the fine detail you put into this. The colors and contrast are amazing.

Thanks everyone for your coments. It's great to have a place to post my work so other artists can see and comment on it. Your right Corvus, I should have made the deck area much softer so it doesn't stand out so much.
