Sighthounds - their elegant looks, their regal holier-than-thou attitude, their amazing speed and agility - it all makes me admire them incredibly. They're so very different from other dogs. So lets feature a few sighthounds that I've painted recently.
Blue brindle Afghan Hound, with a goatee, on a shell with beautiful pastel orange and grey highlights.
tricolor Basenji, showing off his tightly curled tail.
Graceful white Saluki on a fiery red-orange shell.
Italian Greyhound. Isn't it about time I painted more of the breed I love? This shell will be one of the prizes awarded for Best of Breed at the supported Italian Greyhound entry at the Nor'East Toy Dog Cluster, Classic Toy Dog Club of Western Massachusetts on Saturday, May 29th.
This was a custom order of two ex-racing Greyhounds.
