Irish Wolfhound

By gingerdelight    
We couldn't visit Ireland without seeing one of these beauties! We found a rebuilt Bog Village (pics to come later!) and the owner had two of these gorgeous dogs, and they were very large too. This particular one became bored with all the fuss and decided to retire gracefully! Textures added as an enhancement.

Thank you each and every one for your continued support, especially as I have not been able to get on here as much as before - your comments are always most welcome and I hope you are all keeping well.

Using textures and blending - generally that's it! Keep persevering and you will get there!!
I'm not Irish, but I used to have red hair - unfortunately not natural! Now it is blonde covering grey!!! Wink

Such a sweetie! I've heard of these but didn't know what one looked like until now. Wonderful detail on the face!

The eyes and the furry things in front of the eyes remind me of a dog we once had called Bruno. He was such a beaut Smile
