This is a painting I've been working on for a while. It is a commission and was done in pastel. I've been also working on three oil paintings at the same time. Working on multiple paintings simultaneously keeps my eye fresh on each painting.
The reference photos for the painting are below as well as the finished painting. The girls owner said the girls personalities were captured perfectly. Erin, the older girl, is always more quiet and wanting attention. Cara, on the other hand, is outgoing and always hunting squirrels.
Thank you to the girls owners for asking me to paint their precious dogs. It has been wonderful getting to know them all better!!
