Zoe- Beagle portrait demo

This is a portrait I painted for one of my friend's 2 beagles, her name is Zoe

I started with the dog, using yellow ochre and raw umber, plus a mix of viridian and purple magenta to get the black for the nose and part of the fur.

added some burnt sienna and translucent orange to the fur and burnt sienna and sepia for the eye. I'm working dry on dry softening some of the edges with water.

Started to do the background with cad yellow and sap green and some viridian, wetting the area first.

Always wet on wet, I painted the first layer of the distant foliage, using lemon yellow, some translucent orange and indian yellow.

I let the first wash dry, rewetted the surface and added neutral tint, sap green and viridian to give the impression of distant trees and bushes.

And this is the finished painting. I did some fine tuning on the hair near the mouth and retouched the metal stuff with some white gouache. Done!

Pin It!
