I was recently commissioned to paint a triple portrait for a couple due to be married in September. They have a yellow lab that needed to be added since he was not in the reference photo. I thought he should be the center of attention ( as all dogs should), so I used some ***ART MAGIC!*** to make it happen. I wish them all the best in their future together, and I hope their dog likes this painting.
Sorry, guys. I’ve been a little under the weather.
I missed two whole days of painting because of feeling totally blah do to a cold that is making its rounds with our family. Anyway, I hope this painting makes up for missed time since it is a QUADRUPLE portrait!
This is another merged painting. I was given a reference photo of the kids on the front lawn and Jackson in the house. After some photo editing and **ART MAGIC!** this was the final product.
Hopefully this cold will be kind and leave me alone soon, so I can get back to my grueling painting schedule.
Tonight I was so tired that I’m just happy I got as far as I did on this one. It’s not my best work, but I still think this puppy came out pretty cute. This is Cletus Jr. He was a puppy when I took this the reference photo for this painting at my friend’s mother’s house in Marion, VA, but now his is all grown up. Cletus lives at a farmhouse out in the mountains and spends his days playing with my friend’s 8 year old niece and bothering the farm cat.
I might revisit this one again to touch it up and smooth out some of the rough patches. I feel like it has potential, but isn’t quite there yet. If I do any edits, I’ll post it again. For now, though, it’s time to go to sleep, and tomorrow is another day and another painting!
