Home is where the Dog is… a step by step through my painting of Ruby the cavachon

 

Ruby meets Ruby :)

Ruby meets Ruby 🙂

This is Ruby. Isnt she a cutie? She is a Cavachon and the most chilled out dog I have met.

Sinead came to me to get a painting of her done for her parents, as they adore their little doggie.

She was struggling to think of what to get them for their anniversary until she saw another dog painting I had done and thought they would love this.

Enjoying their gift.. if you look close real Ruby is hiding behind painting

Its so hard to think of what to get as a painting for someone.

Getting one of a beloved dog is such a great idea as they are just so cute, they mean something to you but will still look fab on the wall to someone who doesnt know your pup.

Much cuter than a photo 🙂

I decided to do a step by step as people are often wondering how a painting is built. Every artist approaches this differently.. well here is my way.. not the right way.. not the wrong way…but interesting to see.

People often walk in part way through a painting and I want to go NOOOOOO it will look great please dont judge it on this … this is for them to see there is plan in my head I swear 🙂

Anyway, below is a step by step of the progression of this fun painting.

Click in and see commentary 🙂

    Hey Cam,

    Wonderful painting! Your close-up composition is “portrait” perfect – highlights both your subject and your brush work. Appreciate you sharing your process as well. Nicely done!
