Trouble with Robert Andrews, His Wife Frances, Not to Mention the Dog

The Andrews are doing their best to stand still while Thomas Gainsborough is sketching them. Initially, the dog  was in the right place.

The dog was soon all over the place or nowhere to be seen.

Ultimately,  the Andrews had enough, too.

Despite the trouble with the models, Tomas Gainsborough succeeded in sketching them. The final artwork is a charming combination of Robert, Frances, Dog and landscape.
