Starting Walter’s Portrait

After all the holiday deadlines, I’ve been taking a little time off from posting. Now I’m recharged and ready to share some of the paintings I’ve been working on.

Meet Walter. He is a much beloved dog. Not only do his “parents” love him, but so do his “grandparents” who commissioned me to paint his portrait. I went right from sketch to this stage which ended up more finished than I expected. Sometimes it just happens that way.
