Rough Collie

I was asked to paint a Rough Collie. Hmmmm....this was difficult actually. And here's why - the long nose. Trying to get the face and all it's features into that small size. Now a pug or a kitty cat I can fit into the square and trim a little of their faces and still one can tell what it is.

5 x 5 inches, Oil on Board

Fiona is not "rough" at all! She looks very happy and her coat is silky looking. [virtual applause...]

Judy, I think you did a fabulous job! I can understand why it's hard but you captured the Collie perfectly!

Judy Mackey said...

Sheila, Manon, thank you both for your comments!!

Have a wonderful painterly day!
