Megan complete ws

Superb Andrea. I really like how you've painted the background to compliment the colours in her fur. Great eyes too

Lovely portrait.

Lovely painting, love those eyes

Thank you Heather, I sometimes choose a background colour which is a little too saturated, so I was keen to be more subtle in my choice this time. Glad to hear you like it :- )

Thank you so much Andrew, I had a good reference photo to start with, so that really helped :- )

Thank you very much Fen :- )

Thank you Linda, very much appreciated :- )

Thank you Romila, yes, I was really keen to get those eyes right as they really reflect this little dog’s character. I am happy, and relieved, that the portrait went down really well with Megan’s owners :- )

'Megan' Acrylic on paper, 27 cms square. This gorgeous little girl has kept me rather busy this week! A very rare dog portrait painted for some very lovely people.
