I love it when the personality of a dog emerges. :) Here you can see the insane curls on this dog's coat. I really punched up the color of the tongue and brought in more highlights in the eyes and nose. I tried something new - see those intense chromatic dabs on the whiskers? Since that area usually is wet with slobber I think it adds a nice natural touch. More later, I need to work on curls again ...

I use special mediums to mix into the paint so that the fur almost gets sculpted. Below is the finished painting. If you like to learn more about ordering your very own portrait click here
