Pet Portrait - Angel

My finished portrait of "Angel" (oil on linen, 16"x20"). 

There were two big challenges for me on this one. I had to carefully capture the subtle changes within her white coat, making it more about temperature than value. I also had to be sure that such a light colored subject integrated into the background. The key to that was avoiding a lot of hard edges.
