Great expression; good mark making; stunning picture.

Molly is a lovely collie and looks as if she is ready for a good game the eyes are lovely and bright well done Carolyn

You have captured this one beautifully, well done

Molly is beautiful Carolyn. You have caught the cheeky and alert look, great painting.

Such a beauty Carolyn.

She has that 'Have we met before?' expression in her face. Looks very fluffy. Great picture.
