New Dog Portrait Commission

Meet "Saidee", my lastest pastel dog portrait commission.  I think she's an Australian Labradoodle.  I didn't get to meet her, but got to choose which photo to paint from off of an's world!

The original photo had more of the pillow on her right side...which I edited out for a better composition.  She is mostly shades of gray, and the owner didn't want strong color in the background, so I kept it understated, letting the values and lines move your eye around the page with the focal point in the middle.

I haven't painted curly poodle fur was fun and a challenge.

Hope you enjoy my work.
