Your talent is awesome. I am amazed at how much this looks like a photograph. You are so good at painting things realistically. Bruce looks fantastic. I seriously thought this was a photograph when I first looked at it. The word phenomenal comes to mind.

Comment from David Ruhl


This is beautiful work - almost photo-realistic. I enjoyed reading about your process in the notes - that "sheen on Bruce's coat" is done perfectly. While Bruce may be the center of attention, you still put a lot of attention to detail in the grass and water. Beautiful work of art, certainly worth 6 stars!

bruce is having a blast. lol. the clarity is great. the angle of the shot of this dog in the water having fun is great. the capture of the light is great. the image is balanced and eye appealing to the viewer. good eye and great job overall..

Comment from Minnie Kaye


Wow, I had to look at this like three times before I realized it is not a photograph.
Your details are so good.
Your strokes are so smooth, not what I am used to seeing with oil paint.
That water is so great, the colors are amazing between the shallow and the deeper parts.

Initially I thought this was a photograph! I really wish that I had a six! This is fantastic ! It really is! This entire scene is amazing to view, the details are so realistic ! I am in awe! Your beautiful bedlington terrier, all wet from being in the water, the water shows his motion, you even made it drip from his tail! Wow! This is a wonderful entry for the pet art contest and one that will be very difficult to beat! Best to you in the contest!

Comment from Linda Wetzel


You did a fabulous job of creating the wet sheen on the fur and the water droplets from his splashing around. The grasses are very realistic. This is a terrific entry in the contest and should place at the top.

A beautiful painting with very realistic details. The color palette is natural looking and I like the way you rendered the wet fur. Best wishes in the contest.

Comment from cs144


WOW! I thought this was a photo. Excellent job on showing the textures, the smooth fur on the wet body and the fuzzy dry fur on the face. A wonderful model. This is one to be proud of.
