Dog Portrait in Progress – “Dark Layer” of Oliver

Dog portrait oils progress oliver

Stage Three

This is the dog portrait I’m currently working on, of Oliver. I painted yet another layer, this time the darkest layer in the painting process. It’s perfectly prepared for the lighter and softer tones. I already created some depth, however I will add even more darks in some areas. Next time you will se an update on this painting, it will be the final scan. I got carried away while painting and didn’t photograph so many stages unfortunately.
