A Dog Named Haley

Another commission from my sister. A friend’s dog. The photo reference was taken from a top view which extorted the head a bit. And the face was a challenge since it was basically dark brown/black. Also I had considered putting more details in the kerchief as seen in the photo but was afraid it would distract from the head.
