Terror Terrier!



Rah! Let's drape the bunting around and pop open a jar of olives- I've finally finished this commission off. I felt a strange affinity with this dog ( and no! Not a 'one old dog to another' type connection!) as I have finally found something that hates having their photo taken, as much as me! Look at his protestations- I'm going to try that next time. I had to take about 20 pictures just to get one that wasn't blurred from him trying to make a break for it, or showing a set of teeth that would make a piranha look like Nemo. Spirited little fellow, bless him! Joking aside, I enjoyed doing this as I like detail. I derive quite a sense of satisfaction making things look like 'what they aughta' down to the last molecule, but it doesn't last too long. I also derive a huge amount of pleasure just throwing loads of paint around in wild abandon too. Think it all depends on the tension of my knicker elastic on any given day. Have fun!

What a gorgeous lil face,,and the spirit so shines in the eyes of his portrait,,,Great job!
I admire you for your patience for detail,,,,so much,,,I don't have it. Just a 'thrower arounder of paint', that's me!
I have so little discipline,,,,ah well, so be it, huh!
Love all your extremely entertaining posts!

Hi Serena, thanks for visiting my blog. Wow, you are really talented and at first I thought your portrait was a photo, what a amazing work! LOL that little fellow is showing his teeth for sure.

Welcome Lynette! And thank you for the lovely comments. This dog actually bit the guy holding him- needless to say I stood well back, and used the zoom facility!! I need my fingers! :o)

Well you have certainly made that little dog look good. I am sure his owner will be pleased. By the way, as to your chats over the edges of canvases, I shall go off to the shop just opened locally and see what his are like!!! Love Mems and Peps

Limbering up as we speak!! Although these days it's only a mis-timed wiggle! Are you putting on your dance wellies too?!
