|Scooby - portrait in acrylic on 5 x 5 inch box canvas|
Way back on 29 July I posted about a pet portrait I did of a lurcher called Scrappy. He was my first (and, to date, only) time lapse video of a painting from start to finish. Anyway, I was waiting for photographs of his pal, Scooby, so I could paint his portrait as well. What with Scooby being a little camera shy then delays with various holidays, it's only now that I'm able to post the finished portrait.
Because he isn't comfortable with having his photo taken, I had to work from two different photos for this portrait, his head in one and his shoulders which is harder than you'd think. He also has the darkest eyes - they look almost black in his photos but hopefully I've done him justice.
Anyway, both portraits finally headed off to their new homes in Bedfordshire a couple of days ago and I'm delighted to report that Scooby and Scrappy have just gotten a new pack member in the form of a rescued saluki called Marley and I'm honoured to be painting his portrait as well!
In the meantime, I've just started another portrait of a wee dachshund called Little Man from Mississippi so I best get off the computer and get cracking.
Before I go I just want to thank everyone who left such lovely comments both on my blog and on Facebook about my good news last week!
