Sheer Bliss...

I always love painting and drawing dogs, they are my favourite subject.  Sometimes, however, they can be a bit of a struggle when the photos are bad or the colour of the fur is dark.  Not this one though!  I have an amazing set of photos to work from, the dog is cuteness personified and the painting is not a chore but a complete joy to do.  This is still only in the blocking-in stages, with the only part almost complete being the eyes, yet already he is peering out of the canvas urging me to get on and paint him. 

This is in acrylic on Dalerboard with a good three coats of gesso to obtain a smooth surface.  Can't stop to chat, I need to get back to this!
