|Eyes Only For You|
7 x 5 Acrylic on Panel
It seems that this guy has a favorite pose when he is trying to tell me something, you know, the "I need another chance at the neighbor's cat" or "just another bowl of food, now" look.This stare-down lasts until his patience runs out and then.....the barking begins! (Who is in charge here????")
The painting process:
On this Daily Painting.......
I have tried to back off from the bright, primary colors I have used in the previous posts and instead use a more muted palette. Of course I still had to exaggerate the colors a bit with some orange, blue and a bit of red in this. I love the contrast of his dark eyes against the light fur on his head. I continued to push for contrast in the play of orange/cream against the blue/gray. I enjoy using a round bristle brush to avoid too much detail.
Thank you for reading this and allowing me to share a little of "Joey's life" with you.
I hope to elaborate with some more info on technique as I continue to post because I do love to share the painting process as much as I love dogs!
Please feel free to comment and I look forward to any questions...
