Pet Portrait in oil of Golden Retriever Maddie

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

So on friday I finally completed the pet portrait in oil of Maddie and today it was dry enough to scan. As you can see, she is a lovely Golden Retriever. I painted this portrait Alla Prima, a wet-in-wet technique. I love the finish with Alla Prima with all the visible brushstrokes, color harmony and light. Somehow these paintings look more alive and I hope you like it as much as I do. The painting now has to dry some more, before I can oil it out.
