Starting a painting of Charlie the Golden Doodle

I was asked to paint another much beloved “grand-dog”. Charlie is a lovely Golden Doodle with an infectious smile. After a very good first day of painting–this is the initial roughed in stage. It came together much faster than I expected. It’s a small painting, just 8″ x 10″ in acrylic. It’s going to be a gift for Charlie’s “parents”.
