Latest commission - American Eskimo Dog


I realized I haven't done a work-in-progress post for some time. To remedy this, here is the beginning sketch on canvas of my latest dog commission. The canvas is 18 x 18 inches.

This is Junior, an American Eskimo Dog. I've been wanting to paint an all white dog for a while, so I'm excited. Since white reflects the colors around it, I plan to keep very little of his fur a very bright white. I think a little will go a long way and make more of an impact in the end.

Next step, PAINT!
Stay tuned...

Looking forward to seeing the results. I know they will be fabulous.
Would it be ok with you for me to put Twix's painting on my sidebar with a link to you? I would love to promote/support your work if I can.
