|Pet Portrait, 14"X11" by Eileen McCoy/ Oil painting|
This clever client wanted a unique wedding gift for some dear friends- so she chose a one-of-a-kind oil painting of the wedding couple's pet.
To give Auggie (I love that the name rhymes with doggie) an animated feel, I began with an under painting in a vibrant red. The reflected light in his white coat added a feeling of thickness to the fur. His obedient, cooperative stare lent itself to the centered compostion.
What a pleasure to create this for them.
