I have been challenged by my paint group to paint only “Long haired”dogs! I find it harder to paint dogs with long hair vs short hair. I think it is because with a short haired dog it is easier for me to see the dog’s form and gesture and easier to transfer that form onto canvas. I believe i am on my way to loose my fear of the “Long Hair”
