I have been working on this Red Doberman portrait and wanted to share some in progress images. I started with a rough placement of colors and decided on a soft palette for the painting. Did you know that this breed originated in Germany sometime in the early 1880s. The breed Doberman Pinscher (Doberman) is a powerful and muscular member of the Working Group developed for police and military work and to be a protector and companion in the home. They are also lovable companions and therefore this portrait will show the breeds softer side.
