Meet Lucy a small Chihuahua I painted for a client in Alexander, PA - USA. Lucy has been painted in a reclined pose and she gazes at her owners with a rather content look on her face. This 11x14in portrait really allows for all the detail to show well. Did you know that the Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dog? It is named after the Chihuahua region in Mexico. This breed comes in a variety of sizes, head shapes, colors and coat lengths.
When I first saw Lucy's photo I noticed that the was way in the back on a bed. In order to make Lucy stand out more, I zoomed in and brought her to the corner of the canvas. I also took out many of the elements of the room that were distracting.
