I recently completed a pet portrait commission for one of my most loyal monthly workshop participants, Kitty. She requested that I paint her two beloved dogs, Bailey and Chelsea together. The dogs did not live at the same time, but through many reference pictures I was able to create a composition that would illustrate their personalities. I really enjoyed creating this painting and especially loved the colors and textures of Chelsea (dog on the left). Below you can watch the painting progression video.
Thank you so much, Kitty, for the opportunity to create this painting for you to cherish!
