Meet Charlie - A Contemporary Cocker Spaniel Portrait

cocker-spaniel-portrait-by-portraits-by-nc.png

Today, I am sharing a different type of portrait that I just finished for a client from Singapore. My client had seen the contemporary painting of the elephant that was painted in oils a couple of months ago and wanted me to paint her Cocker Spaniel in a very similar style, but as a digital portrait. I figured this is a great example to share with you so you can see that digital paintings can have a lot of color and intense brush work as well. The image above shows the brush strokes that range from thick and expressive to very soft, almost water color like and on the image below of the entire portrait, you can see how it all comes together. 

This painting is available in a variety of prints as well. Just click the image below to learn more.
