Part of a series of paintings for the International House in March 2020
Deciding on the background was a bit challenging but I went with the warm darker blue background.
Just finished up another commission for Christmas. Commission works accepted until the end of September 30th.
I took many photos of Lady and decided to come up with this one. Pencil sketch. Under painting. Final painting, so I thought. I wasn’t too happy with the color of the background and changed it to the lighter color to bring out Lady.

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.
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.
