Growing up, we always had dogs, usually cross breeds. They were dear and loving members of our family who doted, in particular on Mum, who they followed from room to room. Bess was my grandparent’s dog and she was spoiled rotten by my Grandad who would give her secret treats under the kitchen table at meal times!
It has been an intention of mine over the last couple of years to film a lesson on painting a dog and I loved this photo as soon as I saw it. It’s not Bess but it’s a carbon copy of her.
