Such a Ham

BootsDog’s can be so amusing and entertaining! This one looks a bit sad, but certainly more than willing to do whatever the master wants. Actually there are many dogs that thrive on this kind of stuff, you know, playing dress up etc.

I had a German Shorthair Pointer several years ago. She was a wonderful dog. So smart and willing to learn and please. They are great dogs!

I would like to mention here too, that the underpainting process is very helpful in these animal portraits. Sometimes one may want to be freer, but in general, it is very helpful to get proportions right early on.

About Artwithmycoffee

I live in Juneau, Alaska where the inspiration in nature abounds! I love taking photos of this beautiful place and then painting them. In 2013 I left my job in order to devote more time to my artwork. One of the ways I have been learning, is through online tutorials. I have been so encouraged with the amount of information that people share about their artwork. A few of my favorite sites are: Tuscon Art Academy on line, mhttp://thecompleteartist.ning.com/ by Richard Robinson, and http://www.dailypaintworks.com/ with Carol Marine. These have been extremely helpful as I have been working at my painting. This year my goal is to paint almost daily and to try to get outdoors more and paint en plein air (or out doors from life). I also hope to come up with something interesting to blog about it all ( =
