A Posthumous Dog Portrait

A Posthumous Dog Portrait

Losing a pet is never easy and the owner of this cutie is devasted by the loss of her beloved dog. That's why this posthumous dog portrait will have special significance when it is gifted to the owner.

The reference photo has a nice background and I used the same colors for the foreground of the painting. However, I changed the background to a softer blue-gray, because I feel it compliments the orange toned fur better.

The photo that my client has send me was ideal for turning into a portrait. I just love it when a pet gazes back at it's owner. I hope that the recipient will be able to remember her furry friends and the happy days they spend together.
