Red Setter

"Red Setter" oil on 8x10 board
Red Setters, especially this one, have beautiful colouring, a mish-mash of red tones that to me are very appealing. 

The eyes desperately want to "get on with it!". 

I couldn't resist painting him against the blue blanket he seems to be enjoying.


  1. You have really captured the coloring of this breed. And I wish i could paint the eyes like you do . they are just lovely.
    Love red setters but they can run fast and the only ones we ever fostered kept running off and were hard to catch.

  2. Look at those soulful eyes. So special.

  3. Hi Shirley, thank you for your comment, you know a lot about dogs,
    I think their eyes can show. uncheck of their mood

  4. Hi Ellen, Thank you for your comment, I just liked the look of him
    and I think his eyes say it all.
