Dog Portrait: Step-by-Step

This dog portrait on canvas took a while to produce. For whatever reason my mind was like a record skipping when it came to the eyes. Although I only documented the eye change once here I actually had to change the eyes three times. Thankfully in the end I did get to finish. I documented the painting process.

Pencil drawing and blocking in color

Blocking in more color

Hated how the eyes were coming along...

....soooo, I nixed them with gesso

Look, deep into my eyes! LOL

Finish. The dog in real life
does look like he's totally smiling
when his mouth is open.
