This is my latest pet painting. "Brook". She's worn out after playing ball ! I had a cute photo to work from for this.

John,

Another stunning pet painting.  Even the scuffed up soccer ball looks so  real.

Incredible!

Really good Johnbeam, I tried my first acrylic last night with the strawberry lesson and needless to say i failed miserably so far. It dries so quickly! This painting of yours is really well done and I like the way the soccer ball kind almost has a connection to the paws in a sense. Brook is definitely loving her snooze!

John, this is gorgeous! Beautiful capture of soft light and soft texture that complements the quietness of the sleeping dog.  :smitten:  :smitten:  :smitten:
