George the Afghan Hound


Great movement Jennifer.

Thank you Tessa. George is so fast that it is difficult to capture him in action! He loves to jump also! I'm trying to get a photo of him in action, but by the time I take the shot, he is away chasing birds!!!! 😂

Really like this, get a great sense of action and George in full flight!

Great energy and movement.

Many thanks for your comment, Heather. I'm hoping to produce a few of these action sketches. I fear, however, that one of them might be of me in full flight, chasing after George and falling again!!

Thank you Lewis. . . but you should see me in action trying to catch him! Now, there's a funny image for you to portray......?????

Life and movement, love it .

Lively dog ....lively lovely painting.

Lovely feeling of movement - good luck with the larger image!

Thank you Sylvia. It's good to get your feedback. Thank you Les. I appreciate your comment very much. Thank you Marion. I think the initial sketch ideas are the most difficult to produce. Once I have the idea in my head, then the sketch made, the larger image isn't as difficult to produce , somehow. The trouble with this particular dog breed is that they are SO fast and funny, that I have hundreds of images spinning round in my head at the same time. Deciding which one to put onto paper first is a struggle!! 🎨 😂 🤔 🤕

Hang on Studio Wall

My beautiful 2year old Afghan dog is a delight. Watercolour sketch before painting a larger image of George.
