My latest portrait commission is of two very special poodles, Lucy and Leopold, who have very special owners! I painted their portrait from several different photographs, inventing my own background based on the colors and style of their home. The challenge to painting Lucy and Leopold came in their coloring. At first look, they are black dog, white dog. But when you look closer, there are really quite a few colors. It was a lot of fun, and I was delighted with the outcome (and hopefully their owners were, too!). This painting is 18"x18", Acrylic on Canvas.
