Take a look at this painting and tell how's this looking

Hi friends, This is a painting of my beautiful Golden Retriever ‘Brooke’ as a puppy that I have made some days ago. She is such a character and I was very anxious to capture something of her delightful and playful nature in this painting. Kindly take a look and tell me how's this?? I'm really very curious to know...

I find the painting is quite dark and blue. and she looks a bit worried. I think you should use bright colors for painting, watch her closely to show more on her face. You can watch other artists paint to learn

Looks good to me. The only thing that catches my eye though is it has most of the brush strokes going the same direction. I think it would have been a little better with the brush marks on the pail going more horizontal.

I am using Rembrandt Soft Pastel Starter. These pastels are awesome. Bright and true colors. They are so soft which makes blending super easy. I love them so much that I am going to buy additional sets for more color combinations.
