This portrait is 12 x 18 inches, a strong rectangle like the pug I painted recently. I left the style here relatively loose, because I love the cadmium red background shining through the fur -- it makes my subject's face just seem to glow.
Here is the photo I used for reference, and a shot of my very early progress on the painting.
If you would like to see me transform a photograph of your dog into a work of fine art, please email me.
As always, thank you for supporting my art.
