I was fortunate enough to have a young lady call me for a short notice commission early this week. I figured since I was nearly done the challenge and in need of a couple more "subjects", I could very likely finish her request...and I did! These two cute doggie paintings are a gift and I am actually fairly happy with them. I could spend more time on them, but I think they'll do the trick.
The photo I had to work from was a quick snapshot from a smart phone. And it was at a strange angle. Doing commissions can be tricky because most of the time people would like something, but its hard to determine what it is they REALLY want. This one was fairly easy, portraits of the dogs. The only thing I felt as a suggestion was to do two small ones of them, rather than put them on a single canvas. I think it works. Here's a cropped version of the original photo and next are a couple shots of the works in progress! Enjoy!
