Sweet licks

oil painting of dog eating an ice-cream
This daily painting of a sweet dog eating his own ice-cream is a re-post from last year. I have always liked this little painting: he looks rather like my own dog would, if we didn't keep his fur under control and I like the way his tongue and the ice-cream merge. 
Painted with large brushes (apart from the eyes) and a limited palette, but it is hard not to have two shades of red, however disciplined I am trying to be: there is such a difference between cool and warm reds and I find both are required to paint a nice tongue.
