Yorkshire Terrier in acrylics

I couldn't resist painting this cute little fellow.  I am really pleased with how painting turned out.  For this one I started off by toning the canvas (I think I used Yellow Ochre this time - I wait two weeks for the painting to cure before varnishing it so can't quite remember), blocked in the dog, painted in the background and then painted in the dog details. Works rather well.

Yorkshire Terrier measures 6  x 8 inches and is painted on Raymar Feather Lite Canvas panel.

Many thanks to Jade (MorgueFile) for the reference photo.
