Latest Commissions

Here are a couple of my latest commissions, Tabu a Rhodesian Ridgeback at the top and Thomas, a very handsome chestnut underneath. Both colourings were quite challenging as they involve mixing a lot of different colours and getting a strong tonal value takes a lot of experimenting. A touch of yellow mixed in seems to bring them out stronger as they can end up a bit flat otherwise.

Hi Sally,
Beautiful paintings. I thought the dog was a photo at first. You captured the sun shining on him really well!
