  • Max, A Golden Retriever Puppy Portrait : WIP #4


    I’ve just completed the under painting on Max, a sweet little golden retriever portrait that I’ve been working on. It’s pretty dark considering the coat is so, so creamy – but the layers of cream fur that I’ll paint on top of this will have a beautiful dimension to them because I’ve started with this lovely golden base coat. The warm shadow tones will carry the patio brick color through to his coat (they appear to be cool, but actually are a combination of magenta, yellow ochre, naples yellow light, raw umber and a touch of indigo.)

    Whew that was a mouthful!

    I’m looking to finish Max’s portrait on Monday, so stay tuned for that update.

    Have a great weekend!!

    Wow, great job. For some reason, I’m really drawn towards the eyes. Looks like he’s got a lot of personality. Cheers.
