    I was asked to have a go at a couple of doggies that passed away. I said I’d have a go .

    Beautiful....
    I am going to attempt a portrait of my Shepherd that just passed after my recoop from surgery. That will be my first piece as soon as I can hold an airbrush....

    It’s important to lift up the owner,with this art even more, than anything else...
    I know you’ll make this memorable standing out the crowd.

    I love dogs too ;)
    I bet if you discuss that with the customer, you’ll make something up, to compliment the portrait ;)

    I can do what I want. It’s up to me what I do. She doesn’t Mind what I used to paint on either but I chose the dreaded bobbly stuff. I’ll leave it up to you to do what you want she said.
    Like that .

    That’s even better!
    With my latest commission, I were asking for permission at nearly every move of the airbrush, Lol ;)

    I could have done a lot more to this but it was exactly what the customer wanted.
    Now I might have another 2 piccy’s to do, a granddad and something I ain’t painted before a pet Iguana. Yum! 357E38AE-DA58-4B5D-B3E9-BD45136145CF.jpeg

    @Tuffnutz , That's a wonderful tribute to your customer's beloved pets.:thumbsup: Good luck on your next projects, especially the iguana. :laugh: Used to have a good sized one (5 foot / 1.5 meters). She was like an ornery cross between a chainsaw and bullwhip and had the cats terrorized. I'm sure you'll get along fine... :)lol

    Prefer to do the Iguana than the grandad. All practice I suppose.. Gotto practice my ruddy colouring in though. Keep saying next time next time.
    But my black and whites are my favs. But there are 1000’s of whites and 1000’s of blacks and squillions inbetweenies.
