  • Diana, this is superb, the shadowing and silkiness of his coat, his muzzle, even the look in his eyes are so well painted. I think this is my favourite of all your animal paintings but then I'm a sucker for collies. Is this a commission?

  • Thank you so much Val; no it's not a commission; just a picture for pleasure. Although I am devoted to a completely different breed I have to agree that collies have that certain something in their expression don't they? It's that intensity in their gaze. This is on Arches Aquarelle; first time I've used it. Found it very porous but dry brush works wonderfully.

  • This is so beautifully painted. Agree with Val, this has to be my favourite too. Just superb.

  • I thought this was acrylic at first. Agree with all the above the coat looks very silky indeed. Gorgeous.

  • I love this, that look in the eyes is so lifelike.

  • Thank you, I didn't realise until I looked at the photo just how shiny the coat looks. that's what I was aiming for but for some reason I can never see it till I get it online. Essence is what I was after Robbie; Border Collies are such characters. I've loosened up my style and hope it works.

  • Meant to add that there's no black in this. Thin washof paynes grey for the highlights and paynes grey and burnt sienna for the darks to warm it up. A touch of burnt umber in the eyes. No other colours used.
