Jasper - the energetic black lab

As previously mentioned, due to my first grandchild arriving in September, I have had a little break from portraits.  A couple of weeks ago I met a beautiful incredibly energetic 5 year old black lab named Jasper.  I must have taken over 100 photos and still couldn't capture him looking regal with his tongue in.  He was so lively he wouldn't sit still for a minute despite all the usual bribes of treats and toys, it didn't help that there were plenty of fallen apples lying in his garden...........a blurred photo with a waggy tail, tongue hanging out and lots of slobber, now that I can do.
We have another photo session due, so if you have any helpful tips please let me know!

Jasper's portrait will be appearing in the New Year now after the secret Christmas commissions.

Mabel - English Cocker spaniel

Mabel was commissioned as a surprise 50th birthday present for Paul.  There were secret telephone calls and photo session that fortunately remained a secret.  I posted Mabel's finished portrait back in September.
Aren't her eyes just beautiful?

Brambles finished portrait /Recent News

I have really fallen behind in updating my blog.  I had posted photos onto facebook but neglected to do the same on here.  Then in September my daughter had a baby girl, so I downed brushes to enjoy this special time.
So, for a speedy catch up, I will post the portraits now that should have been 3rd and 19th September, and then post current news, before I can post secret Christmas commissions.
