JerryW, Ain't it the best? Finally found a work of yours that would come in. Guests at the table. You're are an all around bold one.
I try, but I guess I'm too timid with the brush. I'm green!

Beverly, Scooter was a pup and so blond and the pic I worked from was a flash. I tried to get more darks and lights, but couldn't seem to get them in the right places, and finally kinda gave up. You're very observant. It was my biggest problem. I used a lot of blue in the shadow and grass. I wish it showed, I liked the effect.

Katy, so, get to it!

Well, thank you, Nathan

Red face

Too monochromatic. Looks like the brown was just from the mix or tube, not layers with undercolor, building up a richer color.

I like it. It has a sweet little sensibility about it. Neat pose. Are they birds flying in the sky way the heck back there?!

Puppy fur is so difficult to get values in. It is so fine that it is difficult to get the correct placement of shadows and highlights because they really do not show up all that well.

My dogs are tri colour beagles and they were still tough to paint as puppies!

I think you have done a stellar job on this one.
