The process….

Deciding on the background was a bit challenging but I went with the warm darker blue background.

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.

“Lexi” Dog Portrait

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.

Dash

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.
