My Boy Brian

My Boy Brian

Painted on canvas board. size 21x26 cm. I was given a very old oil painting of a dog that looked similar to my dog Brian. I just had to have a go and see if I could manage to produce an acceptable painting.


The most challenging part was getting the colour the way I wanted, every part of this painting was an experiment.

I am most pleased with the likness it really is my boy. and other people recognize him too. I also like the expression in his eyes.

Next time I would like to show more detail (fur) for example

This looks like the dog our family has
by: Jill

she's a pit bull, I hope we get to keep her (we being my fiance and I) if my future brother in law's wife won't let it stay with the rest of them (nephews, mother in law to be)

Good

Animals are difficult. I have yet to try to paint my puppy. You have done a fine job of getting his personality. Fur is a matter of practice. I am still experimenting. Your colors and values are great.
