English Setter ''Molly''


After a few more hours work, I'm calling this finished. I've toned down some areas and fine tuned and cleaned up others. Drawn on Bristol Board, image size is approx 7x5 inches which is larger than normal for me.

She is beautiful Grahame, what a sweet face!
I didn't realize you worked so small. Your work is so detailed that I thought it was larger, lol.

Thank you Kathleen, I thought this was pushing the boat out regarding the size, but they say size isn't important!

yes..it's a small size, and you add so many details, everything very well done. I like the eyes expression, I mean..the eyes say a lot here. Hope you understand..:-)
Great work as always!

Thank you Fabio, I understand what you are saying, I always draw the eyes first, if they are not correct I start all over again as they are the soul of the drawing...
