Some friends recently gave me some great news and feedback...
1. They read my blog! (Hi, friends! Glad you're here!)
2. They like in-progress photos. Me, too!
With my most recent dog portrait commission, I made a point to take more photos along the way. It was 11x14" and I was told to incorporate mint, gray, and tan to match a particular color palette. Here's what I came up with!
Kinda cool to track the progression. This painting started from an iPhone pic of sort of poor quality…
(Side note: not my client's fault! This wonderfully sweet man commissioned the painting for a coworker. Her dog, Tuck, had just passed away, and my client hoped to cheer her up. I hope it worked! Doesn't everybody wish for a colleague as sweet as that?)
Here is the original photo, I believe from Instagram:
