Another commission from my sister. A friend’s dog. The photo reference was taken from a top view which extorted the head a bit. And the face was a challenge since it was basically dark brown/black. Also I had considered putting more details in the kerchief as seen in the photo but was afraid it would distract from the head.
This little white dog, Gigi, was with her dog walker when I met up with her at the park. Such an affectionate dog. One morning I spotted her rolling on the grass, enjoying the cool grass and the summer breeze.
I stopped by a bookstore while in downtown Davis. The volunteer there had her corgie, Sutter, so friendly. Instantly she rolled on her back for a rub on her tummy. With the owner’s permission I took several photos since Sutter wanted more pats. Finally got a couple of good shots.
