This is the third try with this piece. The other two attempts went into the trash.

I’m struggling to get the right feel of depth and distance. What I do love about this piece though, is the scene. I remember that day, it was a long summer morning spent watching Whiskey and Diesel get aquatinted with the flock. The reference photo is back here at this blog post: Guardian Pups First Half Day on Pasture. They were so young and almost uncertain then which is certainly not the case now. Now they are mature, solid, confident guardians.
