Dog Portraits, Willow, Gypsy and Zac


I've moved on a little with this dog portrait. Willow is now appearing in the portrait. I shall be able to work her chest area in full before I move back across to Gypsy, if I work any further down I will probably manage to smudge everything. They look a little less like spare parts now but there's still a long way to go, as I have said before this is a very large portrait and it does seem to be taking an age to get anywhere but I am pleased with the likeness I've achieved for Willow, wouldn't it be awful if I couldn't paint my own dog!!!!





Anyway, here she is in a bit more detail, you can see the chest area will need a lot more work to create the fluffiness factor but it is getting there. I'm also beginning to like collars now, I do have a fascination with eyes but I think collars are fast becoming a favourite too. Perhaps I should finish her ears though, she does look a bit funny with only half of one!

Oh my Karie-Ann, when I don't log on I miss so much of the wonderful things you and your family get up to! This portrait of the three is going to be something else! I presume this one is for you?

Yes it is for me Liz, I'm doing a few shows this year and I always take Willow with me, so far every visitor has asked where my portrait of Willow is, so here it is and I couldn't leave my other little furry friends out!
