Another glum boxer

Boxers always seem to look glum. Perhaps that's just their natural expression. I like painting them though - they have such stroke-able faces. I used a little bit of paint called "flesh tint" on his chin and upper lip. I bought a tube as an act of mild rebellion when I read an article stating that such a colour was an abomination and no proper artist would EVER buy a tube labelled "flesh tint". Well, I don't think it is much use for human skin, I must be honest. But I am finding it splendid for the inside of dogs' ears, the muzzles of some types of dogs, like this one AND it is also very good for cows' udders. 

Have a lovely weekend and thank you for looking at my paintings.
