|"Pico", 8x8 oil on board|
This cute little Yorkie is named Pico, and he is the sweetheart of my client. As you can see from the scale of the grass, he's TINY! But he has a big personality, so I made him fill the whole canvas I also warmed up the color of the grass and his fur just a bit, and I added some violets into the shadows of his coat and the distant trees for contrast. I love to add small touches of brighter colors to make the portrait more vibrant.
My client was extremely pleased with her portrait and even commissioned a second one as a gift to her daughter. Stay tuned for that one!
