Every time I write the words Shih Tzu I have to look up how to spell them - I guess I have a mental block in that arena. But, whatever difficulties I have writing the words, I am glad to report that I don't have a similar problem painting the breed. Here's my latest, painted on 16 x 20 gallery-wrapped canvas:
I've been working on a number of "hairy-faced" dogs lately. It's a completely different painting challenge than a smooth-coated dog, and really must be done in layers, with the dark tones going down first so they can show between the lighter layers of fur.
Do you have a furry friend you'd like me to paint? You know where to find me!
