My final commission for Christmas! I have no more work, but at least I can paint something I want to now! Acrylic on 425gm Saunders Waterford paper.
dog, greyhound, pet, portrait, black, animal, fur, acrylic
This turned out beautifully, Fran….no wonder we haven’t seen you around – you’ve been busy! Really love the expression in his face – you’ve captured his/spirit perfectly!
Thanks for such a lovely comment, Marsha. That was quick! I’ve only just uploaded it. I must say it did take quite a while, building up layers of thin washes.
Fran dear, this is such a cute dog. Wonderfully created – you are really a great animal painter. I am always impressed by the character you can give to each dog you paint.
That’s a lovely thing to say Mary. If I had a choice, I probably wouldn’t paint anything but animals!
Thanks so much Angie. I hope the owner thinks so!
Beautiful, your detail of these canine portraits is wonderful!
Thanks for such a lovely comment Pamela. Perhaps I can get onto Redbubble a bit more now. All the commissions are finished!
Absolutely Fabulous! This is simply Beautiful…laura
Thanks so much Laura!
He is gorgeous! However did you do the fine hairs on his body? It looks so real and so cheeky!
Hello Colombe. Thanks so much for looking. The fine hairs are not painted in, but left out and the colour is built up around them. A bit like negative painting.
Such a beautiful painting,well done!
Hello Ellen, thanks so much!
