Just one more treat?

Oil painting of a black and tan dog, pet portrait, pet portrait by karen
Just a quick little daily painting today of this gentle and elderly dog doing his best to look beguiling. Black and tan dogs are always tricky to get right, doubly so if they are also elderly and have lots of grey hairs. I have reduced the amount of greying on this one and also experimented with the grey, using a mix of cobalt blue and transparent oxide red with white both for the background and the muzzle. It makes a nice grey, I think.
Last blog post for this week. Have a great weekend and thank you for looking at my paintings.
