Its a cute little painting. Youve done a nice job here with colors and such. The brush strokes look to be nice and loose. Overall, good job.
Since you are a new member might I suggest you visit the Acrylic forum, lots of good folks over there!!

Just a terrific job of showing the weight of the little guy bearing down on the cushion. I think a more neutral background would help emphasize the doggie, however. It's a lot of pink you've got there.

nicely done. It would I think benefit from a bit more distribution of color detail and weight in the back half of the puppy, in the left hand side of the painting in general.

I like it, it's loose and the puppy is precious.

You have very good brushwork. I'd work a little on the back hip, it looks too heavy to me. I think I'd also try to blend the outline of the lips a bit. Overall, nice work.

Primary, that's for a so touching piece, not to touch.

Love it. Leave it. The spontaneity of the brushwork is very fresh. I just want to shake that little foreshortened paw. :)

Any painting can be improved. We are always learning. But sometimes, no matter where we are on the journey ... what we have done works. It all comes together. Leave those paintings alone and save the learning for the next one. This one is charming.
