Re: Our Baby
Looks good - it would be nice to see a larger image - you can go up to 500 pixels wide, and 600 pixels high (this is 283 x 212 ).
Looking back over other posts, I see you're multitalented! - very accomplished in woodcarving, drawing, and stained-glass - as well as taking up paint, now.
Keeping to a restricted palette is a good way to begin - you've handled a subject here which many beginning painters would find very challenging, establishing form well, and giving this perky little dog lots of character.
One general tip, and particularly useful for portraits - it's always worth having a look at the work in a mirror - errors of anatomical asymmetry become much clearer if you do so.
