Dog Nouveau and Smoke Bowl

Dog Nouveau

One of my current commissions is a pet portrait of  two adorable Boston Terriers. And since my client is open to it, I’m going to share my steps in completing the painting.

Here is the sketch I will be working from

From this point, I will be transferring the drawing to the canvas. There are a few things I want to address while doing this, so it wont be exactly like this sketch. For example, I want to make sure I get the dogs’ likenesses down a little better. I also want to make the circle between the dogs a little bigger and add a border of sorts on the top and bottom of the painting.

Commissions and Other News

I am closed for commissions currently, but I am accepting commissions for late May and June. If you are interested, please send me an email fireoakstudio@gmail.com.

I’m still gathering photos of my older work that I will be selling at discounted prices to help fund my move. I anticipate that they will be up by mid next week. I’m also having a sale at my Art Fire store, so please stop by and take a look.
