Pet Portrait Commission - "Betsy"


8 x 10, watercolour and gouache, 2008
Here is the finished dog portrait. I posted the rough sketch last week. I tightened up the painting, trying to keep the backgound fairly loose and impressionistic. The client's happy!

Beautiful doggy, Mark. If I were the owner, I'd be ecstatic. Mary

Reach out and touch "Betsy"
Well done, Mark!

You've captured the wonderful intensity of the breed, Mark. She's so devoted, and ready to burst into action at the first hint from her owner.
