Collie Dog, acrylic on canvas, 11x14", SOLD
Here's a fun commission piece I had not too long ago. I couldn't remember when the last time was that I had painted an animal when I was asked to paint this collie. I thought that I was in for it but it actually went much faster than I had anticipated. I began with a raw sienna base coat and then drew in the details with white conte chalk. I then painted the dark values, then the mid tones, and left the white highlights for last. I really enjoyed this commission and can't wait to paint another pet portrait. - Jared
