I used fast drying alkyd oils for this painting . This medium lends itself well to blending of colours but I think I should have made the browns a little warmer. When completely dry I intend to put a gloss coating on top which I hope will increase the colour saturation .

I love the expression on his/her face George.
lovely expression, this dog knows what's what!
Thanks Mark. I drew the main features first with pencil from a photograph and then started painting. I found the drawing more challenging than the painting.
Nice work! It’s something on my to do list to paint my animals! Can I ask if you sketched it first or just painted it?
