Harvey the Greyhound by FranEvans

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.

    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!

    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.
