Dog Portrait Commission - Work in progress

This is a commissioned portrait that I am working on this week, although it is time for Christmas commissions, this one happens to be a birthday gift. I haven't met this lovely spaniel but from the photographs I can see that he is the family bear and a very good boy :)

This is just a little corner of the work, which is 45cm x 35cm oil painting on a premium stretched canvas. I am using some beautiful new oil colours that I have selected from the Williamsburg earth tones palette, I am falling in love with them as I paint, these are such good quality pigments.
