July 2012 Juried Invitational Exhibition

Join me at the Juried Invitational Exhibition…

This is a translation of a photograph by Corri Gryting Gutzman named “Chihuahua and the Kayak Adventure”. I did this for the Sojie 17 Portrait Workshop.


Chihuahua and the Kayak Adventure
by Corri Gryting Gutzman

My goal in this painting was not to copy the original photo of Mia or to capture the exact likeness. As you see, I’ve purposely enlarged her eyes and changed some other features to give her face more expression and contact with the viewers eyes. I created a different background to fit Mia into the style that I had in mind for the painting. I also changed the lighting angle from right ( in original image) to left, which presented a lot of challenges in the process. I’ve used stylized elements in my painting and wanted the dog to have some stylized look to it, so that all elements are in harmony, not only color wise but style wise also. I was trying my best to keep Mia’s cute characteristics so that she still will be recognizable as Mia, Corrie’s sweet dog.

This was done on stretched canvas, 16″×20″ with acrylics and oil pastels. Original painting has been SOLD.
