Another day, another spaniel!


As promised previously, here is the second of the spaniel commissions now finished. I was asked to put a few strands of brown through the monochrome colouring to show his tones off... breaks up the obvious standard contrast quite nicely I think. Time to frame them up and deliver them to their new home now!

Bless you Babs!
My wrists are a tad sore now- so I think I'll go play in my paint pots for therapy- get some nice brights on the go like you!
As for the ATC's what a great idea- and yes, I have done some before. It never really took off in my neck of the woods, but it would be fantastic swapping with you and other like-minded peeps! I'll watch your space...as ever!! :o)

This could open up a flood of commissions. They are superb. Can you show them in the gallery or at the show? Love Mems and Peps xxx

Serena said...

Thank you Mems and Peps, as ever the kindest of comments.
I think Mike has his sights already on working them into the 'machine' as print examples- great minds and all that! X
