Portrait of a little dog


I've just completed this portrait as part of my 'Pet Portraits' course. It's from a photo I found online. I used Wallis paper and started off with an underpainting. I have to say, Wallis paper is so brilliant - it's definitely my favourite, which is unfortunate because you can't get it in the UK any more. You can get it shipped from the USA, but it's quite expensive.

Thank you both for your kind comments. I will probably try and get the Wallis paper despite the expense!

What a beautiful painting, and portrait! Along the line of a traditional or antique dog painting with a contemporary twist..classic but fresh and modern. Love it.
