Pet portraits make such a nice unique holiday gift. I know this guy is a well loved member of his family because one of the photos I received showed him sitting at the dinner table with a birthday cake and a brand new tennis ball in front of him. What a lucky boy. I hope his owners enjoy this portrait they will receive as a gift from their friends!
The black dogs are not as scary as they used to be. This good old boy was a pleasure to paint. I hope his family is as pleased with the results as I am.
Small portraits make nice holiday gifts. There is no commitment if I haven't captured the likeness.True likeness is not easy to capture from one or two photos. I have struggled with this guy. Hopefully this one works but if not I can still make a few small adjustments. If it still doesn't work it has been a learning experience. I am happy with this as a painting, it is the likeness that only the owner can judge.
This past summer I was fortunate to attend a workshop with Colley Whisson at the Landgrove Inn in Landgrove, VT. Colley is an Australian artist
