I haven't done any actual painting since 2009 and out of the blue I got an email for 3! 2 Boxers and a Bull Terrier! The last one I did was of a long time friend's foundation bitch Cindy. She was the start of Sterling Schnauzers.
This fuzzy pic was all I had to go on as she has been gone a long time. Gulp. I was game, Tom and Santy are great guys.
I picked purple as the back
Worked light to dark, just had to because the beard and shadings are top layers
Darkened the background to a deep royal purple to make the dog pop
These are cell pics so not the greatest. Finished! This is 16x24 and when Tom saw it he said it was life sized. It is in his grooming salon in a place of honor
Close up of her head
Can't wait to get started on the Boxer! I have been dying to start oils again.... Maybe the owner will get a nice surprise!
