Elsa on the hilltop


Love the colours you’ve used, beautiful eyes and nose and a hint of a landscape background. Excellent Helen.

Thank you Katy. I don't normally do landscapes, or backgrounds, with close-up pet portraits but it didn't work without it in this case!

Another winner - great expression and, again, I love your use of colour

I second what Katy has said, a lovely combination of dog and background which we don’t normally see.

Lovely to see lots of colour in his coat and lovely expression too.

I agree with everyone - lovely!

Thank you so much everyone

This is such a beautiful painting Helen. I love it.

A another stunner Helen.

Like this - the colours in the fur and the great eyes.

Helen this is just glorious!
