Painting #15 of the January 30 paintings in 30 day challenge. Custom dog portrait
Painting #15 (Half way there!!!!!) of the 30 paintings in 30 days January art challenge. Meet Belle Marie. I got the greatest up close nose reference shot of her laying on a pillow. My 2nd 'nose style' dog portrait.. Her eyes were fun to paint as she has blue flecks in her eyes. I have a blue merle collie that also has the merling in the eyes, I can remember looking at his eyes when he was a puppy trying to figure out if it was a reflection I was seeing or what.. but it was the merle in him that gave him those specks. I got a really fun reference photo for this and this was a fun painting to do!
