Unfortunately I don't have a photo of the finished painting.
It took 60 photos to get just these two.
The white dog, Alphie, needs far more colour in his coat and beard.
These curls have posed quite a challenge.
Rosy's black curls were formed from dull watercolour with shiny black acrylic
and with a mix of sparkly grey that no longer sparkles.
The result is that the painting changes with the light.
In the dark you cannot see Ruby's eyes
and as you walk past her the light on the curls 'moves' as you pass.
The gold background brings Alphie forward from the flat background
and it shines in electric light.
Now that Alphie has more dirty salmon pinks in his coat and a darker bears and ears -
(she didn't want the dried blood red of these beards)
he looks good - in my opinion- with the gold background.
