30/30, Week 22: FrankieMy first Münsterländer! It was SO nice getting back to painting with oils again. Smooth as butta! I know, I know, I'm pregnant. Don't worry: I used odorless paint thinner, had a fan on full blast (I had to wear a winter hat!), and had the window open, despite the fact that the A/C is on. There are a few portraits for this project that I started in oil well before getting preggers, so I have no choice but to finish them in oil. Otherwise, I've been opting for acrylic or a dry media.
Thank you to Ilene for contributing your pups' photos to my project. I hope you like the result!
Eight portraits in my 30 Dogs project...I see the light! Gordon the Boston Terrier is about 90% done. Woo!
Next up: my very first ALL-DIGITAL pet portrait. It's about time I do one of them, considering I have a Graphic Design degree, used to be a full-time Graphic Designer, and now teach Graphic Design. Adobe Illustrator is my bag. So we'll see how all that translates into pet portraiture. I'm excited!
UPDATE: This Münsterländer painting is now available for sale right here.
