Above is the detail shot of a pug portrait I completed for this holiday season.
Pugs are some of my favorite dogs to paint, there are always so many little hairy details
to include there, and their faces can't be beat.
This is the floating pug-in-progress before she was given a blanket to lean on.
I'm playing a lot more with pattern and color right now, so this was a fun opportunity
to go with what I thought would be exciting. Her face is so placid, it looked like there
needed to be some more movement in the rest of the portrait.
