Superb work, as ever.

It’s turned out Brilliantly Diana .

He's gorgeous Diana, it looks like watercolour? I think you have chosen a lovely pallette to compliment this little dog, lovely work 😀

I bet your friend is thrilled Diana, it’s a beauty.

Wonderful dog Diana, he looks alive!

Lovely work Diana, but I expected nothing less. You're marvelously talented in all you do.

Lovely! She is so cute :)

It is far more than OK . your friend should be thrilled with this little masterpiece well done Diana

Thank you Carole and Lewis. The fluffy textures meeting the background were a challenge . Thank you Sylvia. Yes,Linda ,it’s watercolour. I appreciate your comment about the background as it’s always a worry knowing how to approach those. Thank you Fiona. She is pleased and so am I to be told that it’s ‘just Dora’. Relief! Thank you Cesare. I was surprised that I actually enjoyed painting it. I find commissions extremely stressful Thank you Jim you really are very generous with your compliments. Much appreciated though. Thank you Margaret. This little dog is certainly a very special companion for her owner. Thank you Tao. Her owner is delighted and so am I!

Gorgeous painting, looks just like my dog Loki as well, inspiring me to try and paint him but I'm still at my early stages after getting back to art. Your other work is inspiring as well

This is gorgeous, Diana, such a gentle expression! The warm background works very well.

Adora quote Terry Pratchett, love your friend's delighted with her picture!

How lovely Dora looks Diana, your friend must be delighted with this super portrait.

His little face !!! Fabulous Diana.

I'd say that was a lot more than just OK Diana it's wonderful especially the colours you've used to depict his white coat.

Hello Denise and thank you for your kind comment. I hope you have a go at painting Loki. I’m sure your love for your pet will come through Thank you Jenny. I really don’t give enough though to both composition and colour so Your comment has mage me make a mental note to think about them more. Thank you Thalia. Yes, she’s happy with it which is a relief and very satisfying Hello Audrey and Margaret and thank you for you ongoing support. I really appreciate it. Thank you Val. I thought the dogs head looked like it was sitting on a teddy bears body. That’s how she is though😄

As always, lovely work Diana! I love the soft wash in the background.

A friend of mine has always been very complimentary of my artwork and really wanted me to paint her dog. I have had a go and it’s turned out ok.
