Good Dogs.

Good Dogs. Oil on canvas board. 40cm square.
I’m slowly getting the hang of oil paint. This was a secret commission, so was given a photo and a quick deadline.


1. Thumbnail sketches were made of the composition, then the photograph in photoshop was rearranged and colourful bedding added to make the dogs stand out and look opulent.
2. It was a sunny day, so why not start in the garden? Simple colours on a little blue pencil.
3. Oil paint thinned with liquid or walnut oil.
4. A few hours with some smaller brushes and it felt finished.
5 & 6. Details when the paint was still shiny.
