Portrait of Kayley the Dog.


Our good friend
Claire

 has probably the most well-behaved, good natured dog that has ever existed.   As much as I shy away from pets (fur is a tricky thing) I had taken some photos of Kayley that looked like they would form the basis of a good painting.

I’m working small again here – 5×7.   This was initially because the latest CCAE exhibition was asking for small things and I had some spare spaces.    This is a work in progress and the head isn’t quite right but I’m cautiously hopeful it will turn out well.

Note: Kayley is a Puerto-Rican rescue dog and so has to be spoken to in Spanish.
