Dog Portrait from Photo, Jess

Good news all round today, Jess' portrait and the trio portrait have all been approved. These will be hitting the Christmas post sack very soon. As you can see above I finally got around to finishing Jess' mouth, poor dog was without one for quite some time. I'm back on the black labs, Liam and Clyde today, I did start yesterday afternoon and decided I did not like the grass they were on so it's had a change of colour but I'm still working on it and will post an update very shortly.
Just an update on the pets, we saw a buzzard flying very low in the bottom field so I went to investigate and it was sat in the tree ready to do another flyby, I clapped my hands but it refused to move until I got quite close (good job our chickens are too fat to carry away!) but I was worried about my muscovy ducklings but luckily all were there and accounted for. Our neighbour is a keen birdwatcher and has said the worst predator we have here regularly flies over which is the goshawk, typical that one nests just around the corner so we have to always watch out for these. They can catch prey on the wing so if it ever takes a fancy to anything it's a gonner I'm afraid! Anyway, we are having major discussions about my new dog, I'm looking for a black alsation to take to work (Zac is gun shy and noises make him very scared, he trembles so much he can't walk and Gypsy gets stuck in the bramble or gets too tired and sits down refusing to budge) so I want a dog of my own to take, I am set on an alsation but a spaniel and labrador feature heavily as alternatives so I am told!
