Cheeky Chap

Private Commission

Anyone who knows me, understands how much I love dogs and how much I enjoy painting them. I can't believe we don't actually have a dog - well, that's another story!

So here is gorgeous Charlie, and the thing I enjoyed most about creating this painting was the energetic brush strokes to get those fabulous curls.  Allowing them to blend into the background gives a sense of movement and energy.  Hopefully I've managed to capture Charlie's personality in this painting.  I have a busy week ahead of me in the studio and that includes a couple of dog commissions so I'll have more to share in the future :)
