Re: Bertie

Lovely work on the different textures in the fur and I love all the colours on his back. I feel the edge of his chin gets a little lost though? I like the blanket too and the way it tones so well with the dog.

Thanks Kay, I agree with the comment about the chin, I'll see what I can do,

Re: Bertie

Nice work, 2 tips:
-Pupils are perfectly round, and the darkest part of the painting to call the attention.
-Add pure white higlights to the eyes and just a bit to the nose, makes them look wet

Re: Bertie

Very nice work Geoff. You really have done a good job on the curly hair. You have had some good feedback. Nothing to add from me. What size is this and in what medium? It looks like pastels?

Re: Bertie

The hair on the muzzle is fantastic. I hope you post with the adjustments. I have a terrier mix and love to see them. But aside from the dog, which is the main focus, the blanket makes me want to curl up in it. Great job on it.
