Richie why in the world would you not be proud!!!! did you see the blue dog thread i posted yours are very very good!!! as to time to treat..hehe i agree whole heartedly. In fact because i am not a parade of one (which really would have made me feel small) i am cooking my dogs their very own pep. pizza and they don't have to watch me eat 90 percent of it either..they will each get half. We are having a party here. Short of champagne..fancy clothes..a cool gallery and cheeeeeese..this is the best we can do. Thank you Richie from the bottom of my heart!!! i thought your drawings were excellent especially for your age. The one of coop with the ball is very good..perportions angles..all. my son won't let me hug me because he says it is creepy but a little typed one might be ok (((hugs))) and thanks again :D
Ha ha, well glad you like it :)

BabyB! What Smkie said!!! Love it. :D

And I am just bowled over by "Packs" Smkie . . . I wish I wish I had a full size print of it so I could hang it up and look at it from a distance and then examine it close up, vignette by vignette, detail by detail, at my leisure.

BB,
That painting is just a masterpiece. I'm not being funny. It gives the real feeling that you are watching his dream. Excellent.
smkie, ditto to everyone else!

if you put all the time together about two weeks at the most but that is becuause Acrylic is a pain to work with (in my honest opinion. Ever color has to be gone over and over to get a dense good solid look and that is with opaques..but heck it is cheap and durable..the drawing part is easy for me...i would just stick with pencil and ink but i love color so.

Ok, here is mine..

Hi!

As promised I did something.. it is a drawing of a golden retriever puppy with his toy. Pups name is Midas and I got photo from his owner on flickr.

Sorry to be one of last posting but I have been busy lately and just forgot.

Here goes nothing:



and closeups:





I did this with my new pencils (thank you Santa!).

Bye, Katja

your eyes just take me away they are sooo good! i think quite a few people are still posting so you will not be the last..i have been most lookin forward to seeing your work..i always am! What a sweeeeeet baby. When the goldens would be born at kennels i thought they were names so well for they just shone like the real thing. I believe they have that true baby look..like baby mallards do. pointers look like pointers, at least to me they don't have that sweet baby face at all. Thank you so much for joining the Chazhound first ever Gallery Show!!!! Not many people joined us but that wasn't the point..it is our celebration in our own expressions and i have enjoyed each and every one. Your all so special in so many different ways.
I Love that Santa brought your pencils..what kind did you get? I favor derwents (i think that is how to spell it) santa brought me a watercolor pencil set one year...i will pm you a pic i did with them for my uncle..it is something he requested i draw i don't know why......are you working on anything new right now? i have to go back to rocks arrrrrgh i have a request line as long as my arm. Wish it was anything but rocks..paper is so wonderful;) clean and light:D
just wait til Grammy sees you pencil drawing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi!

Midas is perfect name for golden retriever puppy isn´t it? One of best.

Santa brought Derwent Artist Colour Pencils (just like I wished). I was using Derwent (like 8 years old :)) before but this new ones are perfection of colour pencils.

It is nice to see other people´s work not just artists because for some I know they will really improve and there is a lot of talent here.

Smkie it seams you did it at least in my eyes, Year of the dog gallery seams to be success.

Bye, Katja

I haven't had too much of a chance to go through everything here but I did want to say that that's a phenominal painting Smkie! And Richie, your drawings are excellent. Hopefully I'll get a bit more time this weekend to go through and really look at everything everyone's contributed. It all looks very good - I just haven't had a chance to look too closely at everything yet.
