Bentley is so cute!.  You have done a wonderful job of capturing his likeness.  His owners are going to be thrilled with this picture.

Looks great Mea.  I am using a different computer tonight and he no longer looks washed out...maybe it was my laptop?  Oh dear....anyway, so happy for you that your painting was very well received!  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks, Danielle, Denise, and Deborah.  I was excited to see Bentley in the newsletter.  I had fun drawing, then painting him.

Thanks, Steven, Mary Lou, Fiona, Sharon, and Jill.  Glad you all took a second look to see the improvements.  I really appreciate when you folks give me suggestions to make my paintings look better.

One of the joys of working with flash photos.  :tongue:  The colours of the subject often get a bit washed out especially when taken up close.

Great job Mea.  O0  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Thanks, Dennis, Val, and Danielle.

The camera has washed out some of the shading,; it looks better in real life.

I have decided that I am not going to do it in oil.   Since the owner is so happy with the sketch and the watercolor, I don't want to push my luck.

Thanks, everyone, for all your assistance in making Bentley a proud fellow.

Thanks, Val, for tasking the time to clap for Bentley.  I know you have your hands full right now.  Have a safe flight to New Orleans.
