Rhiannon and Mario

This Lady brought her dog to one of Helon's portrait sessions! This was in St Andrew's hall in Hoylake before Helon moved to her own studio. Many people spent time drawing the dog! The dog, though, was obviously an important part of the lady's life, so obviously had to be part of the portrait. The dog sat/lay as good as gold on a table beside her. Thought I'd put it on her knee!
