Riley, Border Terrier

This was a last-minute commission before Christmas.  A straight-forward one though - graphite on A4 Waterford watercolour paper.

Spirit, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Here's Spirit from start to finish.  A lovely Cavalier King Charles spaniel who is just like Minty - one of our family dogs when I was growing up; so I particularly enjoyed painting this one!  Having said that, I do enjoy them all.  I can't believe I haven't painted at all up until a few years' ago - all that wasted painting time!  Now, Spirit, I've had the pleasure of meeting on several occasions as Spirit's owners and myself often walk our dogs in the same park.
