A commission portrait of ‘BJ’ on A4 hot press. It makes a world of difference when I am supplied with a really good photo – I cannot stress this enough! When I start working on paintings like this with lots of fur detail I get a bit overwhelmed at first but I love it when it starts to come together then I am like an addict and can’t wait to pick up my brushes and keep working on it. She came up a real treat and the abstract background works well making the painting more interesting don’t you think?
How lucky am I that I got to meet BJ too, she was very friendly and rather large compared to my own dogs, funny how you get used to your own tribe. My bully is large to me but really she is just medium size and I see this when I meet larger dogs. This was a really fun portrait to do, more like this please!
