Poodle portraits are sometimes very challenging to paint since this breed has such tight curls. The good thing is that with oil portraits you can really go to town with added texture to make all that hair pop.
Like most dogs which have double coats, poodles have a single layer coat with no undercoat . The dense fur sheds very little. Poodles could be considered hypoallergenic, although they are not completely allergen free. Poodles have been elaborating groomed since the 1600s and if you ever let your poodles fur grow naturally, it will fall into long, curly cords.
