Some details were rendered using brushes, the pavers were airbrushed first and then detailed using Prismacolour pencils.

Thank you Lea.... It was lot of hours getting it right... The dog, Chrona, passed away a year or so ago and I only had two poor quality photos of him for reference. It's being delivered today to the lady who commissioned it.

I love all of your work especially this one. Is this your dog? My dog Doobee is a spainish hunting dog . To fulfill his hunting urges,we throw him tennis balls. He LOVES tennis balls and is as happy as Khrona ( cool name).

Hi, Sharon...Thank you...  No, he belonged to my sister-in-law... He was quite a character. His passion for chasing and chewing up tennis balls was nearly an obsession. I have two Blue Heeler dogs and they are much the same when it comes to tennis balls... chase, chew - destroy... LOL
