Shetland Sheepdog painting progress

I'm amazed at how fast I am able to work this portrait today...perhaps it is ambition or even confidence when a piece seems to come along so easily. But I attribute that in part to an excellent reference photo and a an outstanding subject!

I love it when a painting is in progress, only the face made. The animal seems to come out of the shadows,reborn.
Beautiful work.
