Beautiful portrait

Such expressive eyes, an excellent portrait.

Said before, this is a wonderful dog and you've painted him so well and all those different textures and patterns too

This is great Frank, beautifully painted, those doleful eyes certainly pull at the heart strings,

Superbly painted.

Frank a joyful painting. Though Casper looks a tad sad.

A great pet portrait, Frank - it comes through that you really enjoyed painting this.

Aww I love this so expressive. Cute casper

A wonderful expressive, even expectant, expression on the dog's face. He's very much alive. The background compliments it well. Excellent work, Frank.

Lovely capture of this lovely dog, as others have said, you have caught his appealing stare so well.

Excellent work Frank and beautifully done.

An excellent painting Frank, he looks so adorable. The textures around him look fab.

Wonderful outcome Frank. Casper and your son will be very pleased. Casper looks in need of a cuddle😁

Superbly painted

This is great. Casper is adorable. I really like the textures of the sofa, throw and cushions too. 😀

Wotcher, Casper. Nicely done. Wonder what colours you settled on in the end for your greenish blanket.

Love that heart warming expression and the way you have painted those cushions with their lovely designs and textures. Brilliant Frank.

Just showed this to my husband - isn’t this lovely? - big smile…”Cute”.

Fabulous work Frank, Casper is gorgeous.

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments, sounds like you all love Casper as much as me! Robert, the colours I eventually settled on for the combat blanket were a mixture of orange, French ultramarine, and a touch of sap green.

Super painting full of interest.

Great portrait, Frank, and love the background colours and patterns.

I watched this develop in the Forum and at one point thought, 'No, a camouflage blanket will be too fussy and distract from the dog.' I was so wrong. Even the detailed cushions do not distract from the main subject. A really well balanced painting.

Cutie pie, lovely portrait!

Frank what a gorgeous painting of Casper. He’s a darling but I love the way you have painted the cushions.

Top work Frank!

As you might know, I am not a fan of pet portraits etc, but this one is is so much more. Wonderful quality to it in the way you have painted it.

Hang on Studio Wall

Casper is my son’s dog. He’s full of beans and rarely sits still, even for a pat and stroke. Here he is, sitting on the sofa after a long walk. I’ve loved painting this one, from those lovely sad eyes to the texture of the cushions. Acrylic on board 8x10in.
