Memorial Painting of Molly
This painting is of Beanz!
This painting is of Kylo!
This painting is of the Bernese Mountain Dog Sophia! Such a cutie!
This was a painting I did of my old dog Moose, I just couldn’t resist that look!
Oil painting of Beau!
This painting is of Millie, who sadly has passed. This painting is 8x10 and in oils. We focused on featuring her wrinkles, ears, and droopy face. Her owner really loved her titling her head to the side when she looked at you.
I really enjoyed capturing all the subtle colors in the black of her snout. It had a lot of violet and red undertones. Working with oils on this one really allowed me to blend those colors together.
This painting is of Kane, a rescue puppy from Houston, Texas who now resides in Indiana. This is a 8x10 oil painting that was a gift for his owner!
This painting was a fun one, working on a dog that is mostly white is a bit of a challenge. You really have to look and see the variations of color within the white areas within the photo. So often I used violets or blue's as undertones and built up from there. When oil painting there is a bit more mixing that can be done on canvas, compared to acrylic painting.
Also I apologize for the lighting in this video, my oil station has a camera that likes to adjust to focus on its own and I don't have the angle of the camera perfected.
I absolutely adore this painting, I mean look at those eyes! He is all grown up now, (and still cute, I've seen pictures) and this painting is to remember his puppy days.
This painting was a commissioned one as a gift for her owner, she was a pleasure to paint!
And some more of the process on paintings!
