I managed to take a better photo of Sunny’s portrait and I am waiting to hear back from my client. Hopefully I will get the OK to sign and post him this week. He is not being framed as my client wants to get a frame to match another dog portrait he had done a while back by another artist.

Sunny smallI am really pleased with the heather and the whole set of colours in this portrait. They seem to work together really well and give it a lovely soft feel. Sunny was a beautiful dog to paint. Hopefully I will get to see him once he has been framed and is hanging in his forever home. The portrait measures 10×12 inches which is one of my most popular sizes.

I also worked on Bruno’s pen and watercolour portrait today. Such a cute wee terrier cross.

Below you can see the pen sketch before the watercolour was added. Sorry about the bad photo it was miserable outside and I took it under my lamp creating the shadow.
