A new bit of commissioned artwork.
That's Sadie and Lola. I love the gleeful leap into infinity.
This piece was one I struggled with mightily. I am an animal portrait artist... and not good at landscapes. And while there are two dogs in this, there is a lot more scenery than dog. I'm not thrilled with it, but it was certainly good for my skills! It made me do studies of light and value and color that I usually just skip right over. Boring to do, but very worthwhile, I grudgingly admit.
I hope my next commissioned piece is a nice close up of a dog, cat or horse face, though!
