Sleeping Dog

Always let them lie!

I recently took the plunge into a bit of realism type painting, completely new territory for me and a real challenge! This is one I had my lovely boy Samuel pose for. He's sleeping on my bed in the sun.


  1. Fran, this is lovely. What a super sitter Samuel is. I think you could darken that hind leg a tad more just to make it recede and less prominent.

    You have a lovely way with watercolours and, I must say, this is one of the best pet portraits I have ever seen.

    Am I right in guessing it is probably larger than your usual working size?

    Oh, and more please...

  2. Hi Fran,

    Thats Perfect!
