Horse Portraits, Ace



Ace's horse portrait is starting to take form now. I have worked most of the bridle but will need to work on the highlights a little more I think. I've also used the lightest of the colours as a base over the bridge of his nose. In some areas I have started to add shadows and his lovely freckles which are just so sweet. Don't forget you can click on any image to see it in more detail.



....And introducing the newest recruit at work (please note we even put carpet in the back of the truck for the dogs!) This is Summer, she is a golden retriever and she is about 4 months old and is owned by Dave. He previously owned Cassie and Tess who came to work every day until they were 15 and 16 years old so Summer will have many years of work ahead of her! Summer is a bit manic as all puppies are, luckily Willow is still only 10 months old and is quite happy to play and roll around on the ground, in the truck, in puddles and mud so they are both having a puppy playtime everyday!




And here they are hard at work earning doggy biscuits! Don't Willow's eyes look spooky, she looks like a werewolf! Willow is obviously having a rest and leaving all the hard work to Summer.
