Dog Portrait in Oil

Working on Tj’s Oil Portrait

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

I have been working on Tj’s little oil portrait for two more days now. I will complete the painting tomorrow and scan it next day, to avoid potential shiny and wet areas on my scanned image. I have used a very limited palette for this little creation to keep things simple and in harmony. The reference photo is quite blurry so I’m doing the best I can here.

Initial Sketch of Newfoundland dogs in Oil

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

Yesterday I created the initial sketch of the two Newfoundland dogs “Nalle & Azlan” in oil. I usually start on next portrait in line while I still paint on the previous one, just to be prepared. I just love to paint the sketch with acrylics! That is something I recently started with and will always do from now on. Acrylics make such nice effects. Now I don’t do anything special on these kind of paintings, since the canvas will be completely covered with oils anyway… but the possibilities really are endless. I will continue with TJ’s portrait tomorrow.
