This is acrylic on canvas board 10 × 14 inches. They were done as a gift for my Aunt from an old photograph of her daughters much loved but long passed pets.

After uploading last week I decided to do some more work on the puppies. I previously used a red for the shadows around the dogs necks and it wasn’t until I uploaded that I realised it looked like they had cut throats. How could I have not seen that.

    Impressive, well done..

  • Thank you although now that I have has another look at it I think I need to tone down the red on their necks. It looks a bit gruesome. I don’t know why I didn’t see it last night
