12x12 acrylic on gallery canvas
This is Copley, my sister and brother-in-law's border terrier. I really wanted to capture his likeness, so I obsessed over it with a minuscule brush. That didn't help. The way I had painted him with that tiny brush made him look much older than he looks in real life. I finally grabbed a bigger brush and put in some brush strokes. It was definitely an improvement. Now he looks more like the Copley I know.
