New Oil Paintings Added to Gallery

I’m finally back from my vacation and I have been working for a week already. I painted two new colorful oil portraits, you can see me painting them on the two work in progress further down this post. The Cocker spaniel is already on its way to Denmark and the Chinese crested dog painting is still drying here in my studio. You can view them here: Pop Art Dog Portraits

Colorful Labrador Dog Portrait in Oils

This is a new colorful oil painting just off my easel of yellow Labrador “Aston”. The size is 15 x 20cm with a simple scenic background. I will complete one more colorful oil painting before I go on my vacation, but it will not be uploaded to my blog before I come back. The client will however be able to see a photo of me painting it before I leave.

Progress Photos, New Colorful Oil Paintings & Framed Drawing

Cocker Spaniel Oil Painting in Progress

Since I have some many pictures to blog at the same time I decided to create one post for them all. First you see both second and third stage of Cocker Spaniel Ronnie in oils. The third stage is what I call “the dark stage”. I paint everything quite dark in order to work from dark to light next. I have much work left on this painting and hopefully I will be able to continue with it tomorrow.

Framed Pencil Drawing

Below you see the framed pencil drawing of horse and “cowboy” I created weeks ago. I went to collect the drawing yesterday and took some photos to blog and show them to my client. The aim was to make it simple and both me and the framer like the outcome so let’s hope the client will like it too. We didn’t want a black moulding as that took away to much from the main focus, which is the drawing of course. That was all for today :).
