i like to get the dogs out, do abit of shooting etc.

Sounds like me :beer:
It's only walking the dogs around Friston forest every lunchtime that keeps me sane.
First Sunday in the month is muzzle loading clays.

Hi Chip

Never painted animals,I'm not proffesional just something to alleviate the stress as and when it occurs.
Not promising anything but....send me some decent photogaphs and I'll see what I can come up with? won't be straight away mind.

I'm guessing you might have Irish setters?

My sister in law paints dogs, one hair at a time. The results are amazing but it takes forever :eek:

lol Robin,she must be really stressed out by now. :wink:

I have a unique way of doing hair/fur and thats to use fine to medium wirewool dipped in paint,but thee's a technique to applying it to canvas.

Once mastered it produces lifelike strands of hair.

Wouldn't it be quicker to dip the dog in the paint? ;)

[edit drip = dip]
