German Shepherd Pet Portraits in Oil / Candie
Portrait Paintings in Oil on Linen Canvas by Katja
Pet Portrait Info
This is Candie, a German Shepherd, painted in oils on linen canvas. Candie is a beautiful female living in Brazil, me and the owner were supposed to use this portrait for Fine Art Prints, but it turned out I didn't have time to create any more paintings.
This German Shepherd oil portrait is one of the most detailed I have ever created, and it has a nice size for a portrait. This pet portrait is still unframed, but I'm thinking of get it framed some day. If you are interested in purchasing this oil painting, just send me an e-mail.

The Reference Photograph
As you can see on the original reference photo to the right, parts of the ears are missing. I copied those ear-tips from another photo and pasted onto to my mock-up. I deleted the legs as I wanted to paint a portrait and not a full-body painting. I also added suitable colors to the background and painted some of those colors over bottom of the neck.
