This month's category is 'Animal', the theme of the competition is 'My four-legged friend(s)'. For this challenge we want a pet portrait. Cats, dogs, horses, rabbits, hamsters,guinea pigs are all good; or maybe you have a pet pig or goat at home? If you do not have a pet of your own, paint a friend's or familiy member's pet. Please do not post paintings of wild animals, unless you own a pet lion... What we also do not want are animals in the landscape, this is a portrait challenge.

As usual, you can enter 2 paintings. Please read the rules before you post. Closing date is the 25th October 2018.

Happy painting!
