While working on some dog portrait commissions, I decided to give a gift to a friend of mine whose ranch I've chukar hunted on for years. Incredible memories, and these are two of his setters, on point on his ranch, who are now passed on. So, I just finished this 9 x 12 oil on panel for him. It's a fairly loose painting, and very painterly, but I like the tension and overall feel of it. This is "Two Setters," 9 x 12 oil on panel:

Thanks! It had a lot of fun painting it. I think it helped having hunted there a lot too.

I can just feel their excitement!

And if you do your part, they will be bringing the
birds back and let you scratch them behind the ear
and tell them how wonderful they are.

SWEET

Nice job just not too realistic looking with two bird dogs pointed that close together.

Nice paint job.
