Pet Portraits






12x12 inches


Acrylic on canvas


2011

White animals are always so difficult for me. I usually start with an underpainting for the darks and then start building layers of more detail. I started with the eyes, for me the eyes are the most important feature so I do them first, that way if they don't look right I know the rest of the painting won't either and I can start over sooner rather than later.




These two pet portraits were done for a local Austinite, who wanted to shop local this year, which I would like to try for 2012 for all occasions, we'll see what happens. Thank you so much, it was a pleasure.
