Bailey Portrait

In memory of miss Bailey
8"x10" Oil on Canvas

I completed this pet portrait recently as a commission. Still new at pet portraits, but I really enjoy doing them. I want the pet to portray it's personality the best I can, or as much as I can through using just a photo or two of them.  I've used oils for both dogs that I've painted for clients, and I really like how many textures I can achieve with them. I'll probably do some in the future with watercolor and pen, my usual tools, to try some different styles, but oil paint is always a really fun change of pace for me.
Also, Bailey's family was really happy with how she came out.  It felt great being able to do this piece for them of their cherished pup.
