"LeeLoo's New Collar," 8" x 10", acrylic on canvasboard commissioned pet portrait of a relatively solid Pug, private collection (well, techinically I'm still waiting for my client's approval). Inquiries (including booking your own pet portrait, from miniature size [4" x 4"] to larger than life) may always come to me.
LeeLoo was so proud of her beautiful new Coach collar, you could just see her preening and working it. I just want to give this girl a good chin scratch. Looks like she could use a nibble of something to eat, too.....
Did you notice how, between the shape of the collar and the upper edge of her skull, the composition forms a circle in the middle of the painting? All the boldest color and sharpest edges are contained in this circle, which anchors the focal point and allows the viewer's eyes to rest exactly where they are supposed to.
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
