My father in law is in town this weekend helping with some projects around the house! He’s been super helpful and we’re very grateful. Thanks Dan!
I have a few dog portrait commissions this month so I thought I’d practice with a dog today. Some friends of ours breed Pugs and just had a litter of 7 puppies I think! This was from the photo for their Facebook page. Too fun. The hardest part= what to do with the background. I think the purple was a good move. For this painting, I started with black and did all the darkest parts first. Then dark brown, then a reddish brown and kind of worked my way up toward the lighter colors. I did have to go back and re-work some of the wrinkles again. Oh pugs. Enjoy!
Here’s a shot from my show at Mugs at the Oval location:
There’s so much wall space there, this is the front corner nook.
