This is Sonny ( King Charles spaniel)our hospice has a few PAT dogs, sonny is one that visits regularly, he is a very gentle character, and the patients really bond with him. So I decided he should be painted.
I was able to be a lot more free in my approach to this painting, although I did stick to conventional colours, he was nearly finished after 3/4 hr, jut needed to add eyes and correct nose, today I finished him,

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow.
I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use.
I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.
such a wonderfully sweet face
