JEANNE ILLENYE Large Dog Portrait Custom Oil Painting English Setter Rescue Lifesized

 
Lizzie
20x16 inches / oil on panel
 
The first image I saw of beautiful Lizzie was with her sister, both wearing tutus in my client's wedding; they were absolutely adorable!  So when she recently passed, I was was honored to create her portrait, nearly lifesized, shown here on a yard of black and white checked fabric along with her favorite toys, a tennis ball and bone.  It was a joy painting her fur with every nuance of spotted markings, especially her nose and eyes...such a beautiful girl.

  1. The reiner looks really orange in the pictures, but much less so in person.I love the idea of just straight paint and cobalt drier.oil painting I don't like oils because of the rest of the mess.
