This is a painting of one of the small dogs spotted at Stroud market a fortnight (2 weeks) ago. This tiny girl was waiting for her people to stop talking so she could carry on leading the way forward.
I have been practicing painting other people’s hounds. I like to do quick tonal acrylic sketches as a break from oil painting. It challenges to think about tonal value rather than colour.
It is no secret that I love animals. I come from a family of animal lovers.So its no surprise that I often choose dogs (and their owners) as subjects for my art.
This part two of photo-essay on great artists who have either painted their pets, or other people’s pets as a way of proving that pets are a proper subject for serious artists.
