Puppies, puppies, puppies!

I have become a recluse.  For several weeks I have been working on an oil portrait of a Jack Russell mum and her 5 puppies, and I am still in the thick of it.  Working hard.

I took the photos back in January, not an easy task because they didn't stay still for a minute, but so much fun, so cute and lovable.  I must have taken over 150 photo's.  Initially all the puppies looked the same, but once I started to draw them, it became obvious they were all individual with their own identities and loads of personality.

Thought you might like to see some of the photo's I took.

Be back  soon!

Proud Mum

The above photos are some of Mum and pups in relatively good poses, and the ones on the left a few, that show just how difficult it is to catch the perfect pose of such healthy, happy and  lively puppies.
