New portrait

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!

I love the joy in that leap.

=) Nice. It is a great moment that you've portrayed. =)

What you mention is what I frequently MOST appreciate in artists: patience! I am NOT good at that, and when you see some wonderful paintings, you KNOW it took LOTS of patience, and frequently several "draft" paintings/studies, etc. Yow.
