Pet Portrait Practice

I have a new puppy! This isn't him, but I'm practicing dog portraits again for those who may want one for Christmas. Since I'm going to stay put at home for potty training for a while, it's a good excuse to get going with the brushes, and maybe even clean out a closet or two.
I really like WN neutral tint for this kind of exercise since values are so important and it takes the guesswork out of making color choices.
