What a super portrait. You have captured a lovely look in the dogs eyes . I am not a very doggy person but this fellow looks full of character and is so appealing.. If you did it as a commission i am sure the owner will delighted.

Is this Wallace who doesn't like to go out on walks? If so, you can see the reticence and shyness in his eyes. Another wonderful portrait done with amazing skill.

Thank you both for those kind comments. Yes this is Wallace who is afraid of the world - I think his nose is a little out of kilter but then! - he doesn't mind!

Another expert pastel, Julia, of Wally, your couch potato, who is every bit as sweet and gentle as you say. Really, really well done.

Hang on Studio Wall

Wallace is 9 years old and has been with me for 5 years after his "racing career" which didn't really take off! He is the gentlest dog I have ever known and a real "couch potato".
