In each of the following paintings I had to take the photo studies individually and then put the images of the dogs together afterwards. A bit challenging but rewarding!
Two wonderful Dandie Dinmonts. Both characters, each very different than the other. Gracie in front, loved the camera… Healey was more reserved; as you can see, they are each in their element. Their favourite toys are in the foreground- the pink one for the girl and the brown one for the boy.
Toby and Maggie
This is Toby and Maggie. These girls were like two little kids-playing and chasing the ball. I decided to depict their home the way kids themselves might represent it- like a crayon drawing, loose and ‘coloured in’.
