Lexi, Shih Tzu Pastel Painting


Lexi
6 x 6 pastel

SOLD


This sweet looking girl was painted as a private commission by her owner.  It's painted on sanded paper, and is a mini 6 x 6, so detailing the bow was a little difficult, but I was able to get enough detail in it to make it real enough.

The reference photo was dark and the eyes difficult to see, but I was able to play around enough with it to make out the eyes, therefore rendering a true likeness was possible.  The client was impressed that her eyes were exact, so that made me a very happy artist!

I also love the black background and am happy the client chose to have it this colour.  I just love the dramatic effect while bringing 100% emphasis on the subject, which is beautiful Lexi.  I have a few more commissions to start, with two of them being cats that will be on a black background also.

Be sure to contact me either here, or look on the sidebar, for any info or commission requests.  This little doll was a $99 deal that I have available only until the end of August 2017, so do not delay! Once the deal is over, that's it.  For prices, there's a tab above linking directly to Commission Info.

Also, have a look at Lexi's painting in process on my YouTube video below. Thanks for looking!
