This is #6 of the Daily Paint Works Challenges. I am trying to incorporate everything that I have gleaned from this and others of these challenges, as well as the Peggi Kroll Roberts DVD's that I bought. Whew! It is like learning how to ride a horse: sit up straight, keep your heels down, knees on the saddle, don't flap your arms, don't lean forward. You get one thing right, and everything else is forgotten! To get everything into blissful harmony is my goal!

These challenges are invaluable, and I am so grateful for them.

Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing this painting, or if you would like to commission a pet portrait.


  1. I would never have guessed that you struggled with this, Cathy! You did a fantastic job. Nice brushstrokes, and I really like that little bit of orange peeking through. Just great!

  2. Well Catherine, I sure think you are there. This is a stunning portrait of this distinguished gentleman.
