The dog is painted skillfuly, just beautiful.
I'm not sure about the grey triangle on the top left corner, though. How does it help the composition?
Artist Reply: Hmm, that is very discourging, the left triangle can not be recognized. I guess my pet under the steps idea does not work. Well, the board was extremely hard to paint. It was important to me to have this there so it would not be the typical pet portrait. A dog. I prefer to add other things to my surroundings, this is why it is in the composition. Thank you for your critique. Thankyou for your opinion.
