Meet Mookie, a chocolate lab portrait that I’ve just begun. This 6″ x 6″ dog portrait (available as a custom portrait package here in my shop) is on a canvas panel and I’ll be working it in oils.
This sketch of her is a bit rough (and also, taken with my brand spanking new camera, which I’ll tell you all about tomorrow!), the photos are saturated with shadow so I’ll bring out the highlights in her gorgeous brown coat as I paint her.
I am loving this pose, with her front paws hanging over the ledge of a stair – I’ll work the background in first and show you when it’s finished.
