Commissioned Painting

Whoopi Final Painting, 2014

Here is a painting that I was commissioned to do for a Christmas present!

I worked from two different photos, one for the landscape, the other for the subject, Whoopi. I used oil on canvas the size is about 30 x 40 cm.

It was challenging to paint a black dog, but still have all the detail and shadows. Building up the layers of colours and brush marks, with different washes and layers of paint was how I went about this.

It would be great to hear what you think !

 

Final Print Images

These are the three final prints I put up in the  my degree show

( well versions of them, they vary slightly),

these are just printed cleanly without too much added.

 I shall upload images of the slightly different versions, and hopefully with links to my etsy shop where you can purchase your very own copy!  Soooon!
