Dog on my easel
coming to life with color
I'm eager to see your face
I'm still painting dogs. I just love trying to capture on paper the feeling of connection in the expression of a devoted dog looking at his or her person. I also like to play with colors or sometimes with just one color to capture the feeling of a dog, whether looking at his person or sleeping contentedly.
Shaggy Dog-- this is my second painting of this Shaggy Boy. I enjoy trying to get the feeling of the bright sunshine on his fur.
Here's the start of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I don't usually start with the eye, but on this one I did. Often the eye is the last part that I paint. On this pup, though, his eye is really the focal point, so I decided to start with that.
