I like the looks of Ben, Dawn. Shades of "Black Bob the sheepdog", from my childhood. Nice work.

Ben looks wonderful Dawn, you have done a terrific job with this portrait.

Thank you Margaret and Jim. Ben is lovely. He was a rescue dog found on the streets. He's getting on a bit now, but still like a good chase with my dog, Jack.

Ben looks lovely Dawn, you have done a really good job.

A lovely portrait Dawn - Ben looks gorgeous. Enjoy your oil painting course, it is where I started and I loved it!

Thank you, Adele. You have given me a lot of encouragement since I started posting in the gallery and I really appreciate it. I did the 2 day oil course and, like you, I loved it. I have done a couple of oils since then, including a portrait of my son and one of my dog, Jack - both of which I posted in the gallery.

Lovely boy- well painted Dawn

Lovely portrait of Ben.

Thank you Maureen, Sandra and Carolyn.

Ben is lovely Dawn, and so is the portrait.

My mum and dad's dog, Ben. He is an old boy, who thinks he is still a pup and has kept his good looks. Pastel and pastel pencil on Sennilier pastel card 9 1/2 in by 11 in. I wish I had done it bigger. It might have been easier, but you live and learn!

About the Artist
Dawn Halliwell

I started painting in Jan 2016 after the death of my youngest sister. I found it great therapy and still do! I love experimenting with different techniques and media. This year, I have set myself a challenge of working on my portrait skills, but I do love to paint animals and landscapes…
