"At Attention (Yorkshire Terrier)," 8" x 16", yorkie dog portrait, acrylic on canvasboard. Inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org .
I am very happy with the brushwork in this painting. There is lots of "wet-on-wet" happening. For those of you who aren't painters, that means that the surface was worked when the paint was wet enough to drag around into other wet areas.
It looks easy, but let me tell you, I painted and repainted this one at least 5 times. If I had the colors right, my drawing was wrong. If the drawing was correct, my colors were off.
But it was worth the perseverance. The painting is a well balanced piece that illustrates the energy of this breed, and also challenged my materials (because acrylic paints dry quickly, working successfully wet-on-wet is tough). I would have absolutely no problem keeping this one for myself!
I wish everyone a very wonderful weekend. See you next week!
