My First Try at Painting a Person With a Dog
This is my first try at painting a person with his dog. A good friend had asked me if I could paint a portrait of her son and his dog for a Christmas present. He had just lost his wife and the dog has been his constant companion since.
My friend emailed the picture she wanted me to paint. As I had never met her son or the dog, I knew this was going to be a challenge since I have never painted a portrait of a person. But it was worth a try and she seemed very pleased with it, as did her son.
