I enlarged this and spent quite a while enjoying every aspect of your skill. I love the colors - the subject and the paint quality!
I really don't pay you enough...but seriously, thank you!
You barely suggest details of fur, Kaethe, yet you managed to capture every bit of Buddy's velvety softness. I like those hits of blue in the highlights and truly envy how you handled the forms and shadows of the fabric. You demonstrate once again that you really know what you're doing!
Buddy is adorable and so well done. Such a serious little fellow. Wonderful.
