Hello. This is a 16"x24" acrylic on canvas I'm working on. I'm down to tweeking but I thought I show it here in case anyone thought I need to address any problems you can see. I'm normally busy with commissions of pet portraits (as well as a few human ones) so this was a refreshing change, albeit a small one.
I almost forgot to mention. The reference photo is from the image library and was taken by the generous and talented Crias. Thanks!

Wow, what great replies!
Susan, Thank you.
Thanks Sue Ellen.
Violet, thanks. I lightened up the area in the ear to our left. It was dark in the photo but too dark. There are a few areas here and there I touched up. I'll post an update later.
Ms. Sketch Pad, I appreciate the compliment.
Thanks for your kind words Katie.
Dank U well Connie!
Tracy, thank you. I'm constantly trying to improve my brush strokes. I'm glad you like them.
