Springer Spaniel portrait from photo, Charlie

I'm back on the case with competition winner Charlie, I've now completed his body and have started on the background. I need to add a little more detail to his rope toy for more definition but I hope to be posting this to his lucky owner by the end of the week.

I have now added more background to this portrait and had wanted to fade the colour out to nothing at the edges, this just does not look right to my eyes so I will be completely filling in the background right up to the edge of the mount. I'm sure this portrait will be completed over the weekend so I'll update with the final shot very soon.

And here it is, I've completed the background with a pale green which will meet the edges of the mount. All that remains now is to cut it to size, mount and post it to Keren, Charlie's owner.
