Oliver



SOLD
After a good night's sleep, I took a second look at this painting and decided that the background needed to be calmed down. I also adjusted the muzzle a bit so it's not so lopsided, and then added more shadow. I think it's a bit better.

Thanks so much, Maga! He is a handsome dog - I haven't met him, but he looks like a sweetheart.

Yes, I think the pale blue background is better than the green. Good call.
Have a great weekend.
