Indy Portrait coming along

I've started blocking in everything for Indy's portrait. I already love working on her face, but will have to concentrate on the background once I start finishing it up.

Pet Portrait Ornaments

I love Christmas ornaments; there's something really elegant about shiny baubles on a tree. So to get my creative juices flowing, I picked up some ornaments from the dollar store to paint on. Painting on a small spherical, shiny ornament definitely is more difficult than a board, especially without the ability to easily erase. Still, these ornaments are fun to paint quickly.

Indy and Skye

I'm starting a new set of paintings of two Labradors. They are both hunters, with Indy, the black lab, specializing in geese, and Skye, the yellow lab, trained to hunt pheasants. So, the client wants a setting to match each dog's personality and hunting ground.

Initial sketches from provided photos

Indy had some great shots in the snow, so I wanted to use that as a contrast against her black fur. Skye looks great in the grassy fields. I'll continue onto real sketches as soon as I get the go ahead!
