Jack is beautiful. His colours are lovely. So is your work in pastels, wish I could do this Julia.

This is a super pastel, Jack looks lovely.

You just get better and better. You just get everything totally right from the actual portrait to the background. Also the subtlety of your work and this portrait is wonderful and I can really feel how much you love dogs through it.

Julia this is just beautiful !!!!

Beautiful dog and lovely colours used. Very well done indeed.

This is lovely - well done. I tried pastel on velour for the first time this week and, as you say, it certainly can be unforgiving!

Yes it is unforgiving but what a result, well done.

Julia, I missed this. It is beautiful as always and I agree with everything said about it.

Excellent! Great fur.

Somehow missed this one when I was enjoying my walk through your gallery. He's gorgeous - love the wispy bits of hair and that very calm and contented look!

Hang on Studio Wall

I seem to have drifted back to my pastels! This was painted on velour which I found quite unforgiving.
