This portrait of Baisley, the lastest addition to our family, a little female pug was created by using several versions of the same photograph as reference material.
Each of the photographs were tinted in Photoshop to different contrasting colours. These images were selectively incorporated into the final image during the painting process.
The piece was created upon request from a gallery after seeing a small commissioned dog painting from 2015. They wanted an image that could be sold as an original, but also as prints as part of a fundraising project. As such it's a complete departure from where my new work is heading.
