This is Lexi, the dog who would not stand still for a photo. In this painting I worked more on soften the edges to give it a more softer look. The background is different from how I treated other dog portraits. I wanted a more neutral color so that Lexi would stand out.
I just finished a watercolor portrait for an internet friend in Finland. The original painting is up for sale in my Etsy shop.
Another dog portrait commission.
Just finished a commission for a very small dog painting. It’s only 3 x 3 inches and it’s perfect for a doll house.
Commissions for this size and larger in my Etsy shop. It’s late for Christmas, though.
An artist friend of mine has two beautiful greyhound dogs. And they are so friendly.
I wasn’t quite sure of the green background…but somehow it works.
This little painting of a chihuahua mix was sold at The Dogs Exhibit held at Exhibit B Gallery in Souderton, PA in October, 2017. The exhibit benefited the Dog Town Rescue and was part of The National Dog Show. I know that this little painting is in the hands of a loving dog owner. 🙂
Building up my collections of 3 x 3 inches dog portraits for the Pence Gallery Holiday Sales in Davis, coming up in three weeks.
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.
I got so many dogs photos from the parks that I can’t remember who this one is. But another tiny painting.
Here’s a previous photo of it before I put in the final touches…it had appeared in Instagram. The palette knife is there for scale.
