Sunny On Guard

Sunny On Guard

Nice painting, nice story Thalia. Poor Sunny.

Unusual angle works well, Thalia. Sunny sounds a gem.

Gorgeous colours and a painting full of love and fun Thalia.

Wow - fantastic colour Thalia!

Really gorgeous painting of sunny

Lovely, like the reflections on her head.

Hoped this would brighten everyone's day...especially mine...WOT! Thunder and torrential rain AGAIN! No Plein air again then!!! Thank you Michael...poor ??? You kidding??? She's spoilt rotten and has everyone wrapped around her rather large paws!!!She actually had about 2 mins hunt today!! Thank you Dawn, yes she is a true gem! Thanks Carole, you can't fail to love her! Thanks Shaun, yes, the Maltese hunting dog called a tal Catcher, is a bright orangy red, BS really but I chose acrylic ink Flame as it heightened the fun and complemented the blue/purple of the lobelia. Ha! Tom! You found it, indeed i just had So much enjoyment out of this! Thanks Tessa. Originally I made them too dark and had to sponge it out a little. Amazingly good paper. I even managed to use masking fluid successfully, probably because it's cooler than normal over here at the moment!

Oh did anyone see the gecko she missed...he's hiding and laughing at her behind her back!!!

Gorgeous flowers , lovely story,and a great angle of Sunny, who isn't a sad dog,but a very happy and a very loved beautiful dog.

Lovely painting and great colours.

I just love this - the pose, the unexpected colours and that lovely little dog with his back turned, great!

Thank you Annick and Liezel and Heather, she keeps herself ..and us.. amused for hours!

Hang on Studio Wall

The Great Not-Quite-White-Blind-Huntress misses again!! Sunny, our blind dog, spends her whole summer hunting for geckoes in our courtyard. All you can normally see is her rear end with her tail wagging madly as she can hear and smell them and they cheekily pop out, laugh at her and disappear in a plant pot! This was painted to record all the fun. Mixed media on Bockingford HP, using ink, watercolour and graphite for the fur. I was basically trying out a variety of techniques, and had loads of fun, I also learned a lot!
