I love Airedales, and when one came past at my recent Artist Market, I grabbed my camera and asked to photograph him.

Excellent K9 pic. I don't have familiarity with them. But I'll take your words that they're spiffy. Are they one of the hypo-allergenic breeds like poodles? Love your sketchy painterly style on the toned paper. Feels very full. :):):):):)

Very cool man.

Thank you Victor, Mr Akey and Steve. I just like the look of them... stylish and alert, and the colour is great.

Their coat is a double coat Mr Akey, and they don't shed, but need clipping or stripping every few months. I'm not sure about non-allergenic, it's certainly not written anywhere, but not shedding would be an advantage.

Excellent portrait of Groucho Marx's dog! :eek::cool: impressive likeness with his master ... but maybe a cigar would have helped LOL;):o:p

Great painting Robyn, I love Airedales too. Thought you might like to see how Boris has grown up (you did that marvellous pic of him as a pup), he's taking my wife for a walk here.

great painting/sketch as usual Robyn, it still amazes me you you achieve the soft curly look of his coat with such directness. you are a master!... love your work on toned background as well.

Caesar, Marilyn Anne, Aunt Betsy and Alexandra, and Gary, thank you!

And to you Neil. It's funny, I only looked at him the other day and wondered how big he was. I am having an Open Studio Day on the weekend, along with a digital art demo, and complied a slide show of lots of my AR paintings, and there he was!

He's a big boy now! How do you go with that huge coat?
