    Ok - this is my first attempt at putting a background on my work (besides just a colour). And even though its not the most detailed (I wanted to keep the eye on the dog not whats around her) and its a little lighter than the photo I worked off of, I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out. Especially since she's my little baby!

    Thanks for looking!!! :)

    Excellent background choice, Brandy! The red really accentuates your dog.

    Very nice! And she's such a cutie, anyway.

    I have to ask... are your walls covered with portraits of her, like mine are with portraits of our furkids? :D

    And Snark, I have an extensive "Brandy" collection - LOL...and everytime I start a new one hubby does the "sigh" and says, "You're drawing her again!?" He says I'm obsessed ... I guess he's probably right - hehe.

    A person should chose to draw what they know best...of course you could always suggest your husband go sit in front of the flowers:D Nice drawing;)
