Three Jack Russell's - finished painting


Currently on the easel is an oil portrait which as it is a Christmas present,  I won't say too much about, so as not to spoil the surprise.  I will post the photo's after Christmas.

So in the meantime, here are the final  photo's of the three lively Jack Russells.  I hope you enjoy looking at them.

In progress photo's of three Jack Russells' in oil - Part one


Here are some "in progress" photo's of the Oil painting of the three Jack Russell's in their favourite position on their front stepsI paint in layers, allowing each coat  to dry thoroughly before applying the next.  It is a slow process, but worthy of the wait, as it eventually produces incredible results.
