noble oil

pve design - noble oil commission
In the midst of a commission of a noble dog. There are actually two, one Gordon Setter is hidden, and this is only half of the painting that I am showing you.
Capturing this noble dog has been a thrill for me. The tree is so full of character, but I am working hard to keep all the focus on this beautiful creature.
Each day - I work for a few hours, getting closer to what I feel will be worthy of the Master and this noble good sport.

Fun, I am working on a fallen comrade now. A long lived older gentleman with a love from his master.

Funny how not ever knowing this dog, I too feel like doing my best to capture what he must have been and what he meant to his loyal mom!

Good luck Patricia,
L.

Thanks - I think animals are such a thrill to paint.
It is like my brush is speaking for them.

The noble dog is as steadfast as the tree. Can't wait to see the noble oil painting when finished.
