Framed Oil Portrait of Border Collie Chatt

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

This is the framed Oil Portrait of Border Collie Chatt, my own dog. The moulding is new and will be added to my framing gallery soon, a very heavy high quality moulding. Hopefully I will be able to find a nice place on my wall for this one, probably here in my studio.

Oil Portrait of Tervueren Xena

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Today I also scanned the oil portrait of Xena. The painting is not dry yet, but still enough to be placed on a scanner. I will now leave the oil portrait to dry over the weekend and hopefully it will be dry enough to oil-out on monday. Well, if not… I will just wait for a couple of more days. Xena is a lovely Tervueren and if you ask me which kind of dog is hardest paint or draw, it sure is the Tervueren. If you paint one little thing wrong, then everything looks out of place and the right expression is gone. Well, I got it just right this time.

Final scan of Noel in Oils

Friday, October 10th, 2014

So after a few tweaks to Noel’s Portrait (requested by the client), it’s now finally scanned. This has been a true challenge because of the quality of the reference photos I had to work from, but I had some great help on the way. The client has been very helpful and described Noel very well by phone and through emails. Now Noel will dry some more before I will be able to oil-out the painting and then leave it do dry some more again.
