Dogs, Dogs and Dogs

Black Lab, Oil 6x6

Rescue dog being fostered by a friend, Oil 8x8

Shaved sheep dog, Oil 20x20

 Once I started painting dogs a few months ago I can't seem to stop. They are interesting to paint, it is finding a picture, setting up the problem, drawing the image and then trying to paint, keeping loose and bright and not getting into details or over painting .....but trying to get it to look like the picture of the dog. Works sometimes and sometimes it just doesn't. The first one above, the black lab, the eyes are to close together, in the picture the eyes are apart more, I might change this if the paint stays wet or try another one. Going over a painting sometime makes it look overworked. Nothing worst then an over worked painting.
