Welcome Shade

This is an image showing the interaction with people and their pets. After a run in the afternoon sun a little  rest in the shade is a welcome relief.
I tried to loosen up a little bit and keep it more painterly, concentrating on value and color. But more important is the emotional impact a touch on the dogs head can have. You can sense the concern she has for her dogs.

One can sense the dogs panting in the shade. I like the reds popping out in this painting, Pat!
