Dakota

We are back from our short trip to Alamos, Sonora and I am back into the painting.

I finished this chalk pastel painting of my grandchildrens dog Dakota.  I am not happy with it at all.  I really seem to have problems with doing the very light coloured animals.  I think it is because I am too cautious with the darkness of the shadowing; but I am not sure.

Anyway it will be off to them shortly, I hope they will like it.

It's from Gramma. Of course they'll like it!

Great picture, Brenda. The eyes are especially captivating.
