In the Clover

In the Clover

I am a sucker for dogs. My own dogs have never let me get decent photos to paint, so I paint other people’s dogs.  Isn’t she cute with that single clover right in front of her nose? I had to paint her. Her name is Amber and she belongs to Duncan, an online artist friend. I wish I’d thought to take an angled shot of the painting. It is on 3/4″ deep cradled wood panel, with the edges painted black, so it can be hung framed or unframed. I really like how these panels have a nice finished look on their own.  These have a little canvas texture to them that I like with oils, too. You can see the texture on if you mouse over it to magnify.  The most important part of any portrait to me, is the eyes. I’m very happy with the eyes on this one. 🙂
