This is the Boston terrier oil portrait in progress, currently on my easel. The size is 12″x12″, painted on professionally gallery-wrapped Italian linen canvas.

Her namne is Bella.

I’ve now blocked in the entire canvas and continued to paint the under layers which will make it easer to paint details later on. Naturally I also started to paint some details as well.

I’m having fun creating this oil portrait and it goes slow because because of the puppy I have right now, however I have to really plan in order to save time.

That’s also a learning experience, we learn as long as we live.

I took a few photos today while working on Bella’s oil portrait, view them here.

The actual colors are more like on the close-up photo of me holding the brush than the full-view photo.

I hope you like the progress.
