This portrait was commissioned as a graduation gift for my cousin-in-law, Kate. Her family dog, Cheyenne, was drawn using a grid to maintain proportions & the key lines transferred to cradle board (3/4" deep stretcher with a birch veneer). After painting the first portrait in turquoise for her, I made another with a blue background for her parents. Once both paintings were almost finished, I painted them side by side, mimicking my brushstrokes and color layers to make them look as similar as possible. Order your own portrait here.
