Finished Portrait of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Named Mack

Mack the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel by Hope Lane, 11″ x 14, acrylic on archival panel

I loved painting Mack with those big soulful eyes looking straight out at you. But I breathed a big sigh of relief when the background pattern was completed. While I love painting complex fur (like the flip of Mack’s plumey white tail), painting patterns and type are a bit more daunting. Still here we are at the end of the painting, and I and my client are happy with how it turned out.
