Good Dog!

This was my first dog "portrait". Long hair and fur are perfectly suited to this simplified brush style of painting.

I use some kind of reference for all of these paintings, whether it's from magazines or my own photos. This is from a picture I took of a friend of mine, and while I'm not usually trying for likenesses, this one definitely looks her!

This is one of my favorites...it's simple and nothing was overworked.

Gentle giant

It wasn't until I recently started painting dogs that it occurred to me that I could be painting more than girl pics...so I'm trying different things.
