"Max the Red Toy Poodle"
6" x 6"
This little guy was a commission given as a house warming gift. The client had a bunch of great reference photos for me to choose from, which I love. This is actually based on two different photos belive it or not, a black and white for the pose and a color to get his coloring right. Sometimes people think they don't have a good enough photo to paint from, but I actaully like some "not that great" photos better. Like the commission I'm working on now, the photo is a tad of of focus, but that just helps to see the big shapes first, which helps the painting hold together better.
Here he is all framed up and ready to go:
