Pet Portraits Commissions

I just completed two pet portraits commissions. Very fun to do.

Chloe was a bit of challenge to do especially with the amazing amount of fur. Besides her fur I wanted to capture her sparkling brown eyes and her cute little mouth to reflect her perky personality.

The commission for Gus came through Etsy. It’s one of the tiny paintings of only 4 x 4 inches. It was a challenge but a learning experience on painting tiny. I started off with bristle brushes by Robert Simmons, my favorite. But when it came to the details, I found another Robert Simmons brand, Simply Simmons. The brushes are softer but were great for details. I used mainly the filberts.
