Wonderful job with Maggie's dog, Angela! You really captured the expression - very sweet.

Wow!!! is all I can say. Angela, This is BEAUTIFUL! Edward is right, you did capture my dog Tulsi in this challenge.

I love the eyes--so compelling!

Angela Elledge said...

Edward & Maggie, thank you very much; this was such a fun portrait to paint. I'm happy to know Tulsi's name, now!

Julie- thank you! I miss plein air painting, but can't take the heat, so happy to paint in the AC until early fall.

Art with Liz said...

Oh Angela, it was the type of picture that just said 'paint me' ! And you've done that fabulous face proud!

Though I've never met Tulsi, I'm convinced you've absolutely captured her soul. So many of your animal portraits have this wonderful quality.
