The Pyrenean Mountain Dog, known as the Great Pyrenees in North America, is a large breed of dog used as a livestock guardian dog. It should not be confused with the Pyrenean Mastiff.

Jack Russell Head Portraits by NC Today I send off another new portrait and my very first Jack Russel portrait thus far. I love how this painting has turned out, because it has such a quiet and calm feel about it. Jack Russell tend to be rather hyper so I think it's rather deceiving how calm this whole presentation of the dog gazing out of the window is.

How to Ice a cake with Icing #Spatula   via http://goo.gl/aQM7Tg #baking  
#Sponsored #Spatula Have you ever wondered how to ice a cake? I am on a quest to improve my baking skills and have trolled the internet to learn how icing is done. The video below gives some great tips about the consistency of the icing and how to avoid pulling the cake apart as you apply the icing with a spatula. Preparing a perfectly smooth iced cake, while keeping crumbs out of the icing can seem like a tricky thing but ove...

#boxer   #portrait  painted on a 4x4in mini canvas . Learn more at http://www.portraits-by-nc.com/blog
Boxer by Portraits-by-NC.com This is a portrait I recently finished of a boxer. The reference photo was rather dark so I added a lot of highlights to bring out the features. Mini portraits measure 4x4 inches and are painted on canvas which is mounted onto a wooden panel. On mini portraits a rigid support makes it easier to add the details. The Boxer is a medium-sized, short-haired breed of dog, developed in Germany. The coat is s...
