This little dog found us. He came down our drive as a little pup and stayed. Its my first try at doing animal portraits. I hope Augie likes it. :D

Nice, I don't think I would want to be his chew toy.

Love doggies. This is great and only your first try?

You've nailed the nose and doggie really well.

Thanks for the replies.

It seemed undaunting when I started blocking in colors and it looked so mixed up. Then I worked one area at a time. Yes, its my first try at any portrait. It was really fun.

How well you have captured the look in his eyes Mikala. A wonderful painting.:)

Thank you for the nice comments. I may try my other dog soon but have to have him hold still enough to get a pic. :D

I'm new to ArtRage and really happy to have found you all. You are all so talented and knowledgeable.

Always something special when the animal picks us. There's a special bond.

A cutie but looks a bit sad, and congrats on a well done fist doggie portrait :D

Thanks ... I named him after Augie Doggie. I always loved that cartoon and always wanted to name a dog Augie. So when he came along, I got my chance. And yes, when they choose you - there is a special bond.

First try, eh??? Awesome. You are going to be a force to be reckoned with.

Thanks Beachpony and Bobbi - yep ... first try of any type of portrait. I thought it was difficult to get going. My Dad had the ability to look at something and copy it to a tee ... I may have inherited that ability a little.:)
