"Tucker(ed Out)," work in process, 12" x 16", acrylic on Raymar panel, commissioned pet portrait of a black lab mixed breed, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries (including booking your own pet portrait, from miniature size [4" x 4"] to larger than life) may always come to me.
I don't usually like paintings with exaggerated foreshortening, but Tucker's state of total relaxation seemed to accent the stretched out paw quite nicely, so I made an exception this time around.
This is the first layer of paint on the canvas (you can see the pink underpainting showing through in places). I will continue laying down loose shapes and building a stronger sense of depth before I start on any details.
Meanwhile, I finished Henirich's painting, which comprised my last three posts. I'll share him with you once my clients give me the thumbs up.
And just as an extra bonus, I'd like to share a link that sums up why animal rescue efforts, even the smallest, are so important. Watch the "Just One Dog" video clip and be prepared - you might need a tissue. Many different people working together cansave a life. Don't think that your donation, whether it's time, talent or hand-me-down towels and other sundries, goes unappreciated. (And a big warm hug to the Dog a Day reader who sent me the Camp Cocker link!)
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
