|A very photogenic Grace|
|Eyes, and some light washes of quin. burnt orange, quin. violet and indanthrone blue|

|I've started using some dry brush technique|
I was at the feed store a couple of weeks ago, stocking up on hay for His Imperial Highness, and I was attracted to a very sweet Bernese Mountain dog. I found out she "works" at the store with her owner, Danielle. I asked if I could take her outside for some photos, so all three of us went out, and Danielle helped me "pose" Grace. I've been playing with the painting for two weeks, and I think it still needs darkening of the blacks, and of course more depth of shadow. But she is a very sweet and attractive girl, and I think I am catching some of that in the portrait.
