Portrait of Daisy, a rescue dog

The painting I last posted about–Pudge’s portrait was part of a set given as a gift. Daisy was the companion dog portrait that I painted. This is the sketch for her portrait. In order to keep both paintings unified–each was the same size 12″ x 12″, and each used the same soft blue color in the background. The two dogs themselves also had consistent coloring. This sketch is a hand drawn pencil sketch that I scanned and colorized in Photoshop. I find this process helps my clients to fully visualize the final result.
