Italian Greyhound fur looks like velvet to me. This little sweetheart is Mona Lisa. It's always fun to paint a dog curled up asleep, and I especially loved the way her head was tucked in...

Kathleen - I have a weimar and they curl up like this too, their legs aren't as thin, but they sure twist up into a ball - I love the sketched but finished feeling to this one!

Your work on these beautiful dogs is amazing. With each one there is a different personality that emerges. Great series!

"Oops, she did it again", another cool composition! You are doing a great job exploring all angles.
