I absolutely love it, stunning subject and painting

Wow! this is absolutely superbly drawn, very interesting warm feeling to it, brilliant Sarah.

Oh thank you all so much for your kind comments. I LOVED painting this one!

Just fabulous Sarah - the eyes say it all.

A stunning piece, beautifully painted. You've captured the intelligence, alertness and the anticipation of the hunt perfectly.

Wonderfully worked painting and it makes me want to know if it is a large bone they are looking at so longingly!

This is stunning Sarah, beautifully painted.

This is absolutely wonderful and so realistic. If only I could paint an ear or nose like these I would be......ecstatic...What an inspirational painter you are Sarah - thank you for sharing with us.

I've been overwhelmed by these lovely comments…thank you. x

Stunning artwork!

I&#39;ve already commented on this fabulous work Sarah and I was pleased to see it on Gallery pages for this month&#39;s selection.<br /><br />Could I ask you how you get your signatures so crisp and neat, I always struggle signing in oils, or is it a special marker pen? Hope you can help. Alan

Hi Alan. I paint my signature with a very fine brush 10/0 and I dilute the oil considerably with liquin and turpentine so that it&#39;s almost runny and produces bubbles when it&#39;s mixed on the palette. The brush holds this far better and allows for smooth lettering. Hope this helps.

Thank you for that Sarah, okay so i&#39;ll get some liquin tomorrow and give it a shot, very helpful, Alan
