Aussie Pastel Pet Portrait

11 x 14 oil on panel

This pretty girl is Luna, an Aussie who I had the pleasure of painting recently.  When I was commissioned to paint her, I fell in love with her inquisitive, expressive eyes.  She just looks like a dog who is waiting for the next fun instruction.

Her pet portrait was painted with oils and I chose to do her on a panel, which is my favourite  when it comes to painting pets or any animal with oils.  They allow for smooth brush and paint flow, and I find I can create better details because I'm not fighting with the grain in canvas.

I hope you like Luna's painting.  She certainly was a treat to paint and I look forward to sharing some more pet paintings very soon!

By the way, pet portrait commissions requests are already coming in for Christmas, so please don't delay if you're thinking of having a painting made of your dog or cat, or any other pet.  I paint these pet portraits from your photos and the process is simple. Message me through the side link for more info.

P.S.  Here's a little clip showing some brush work on Luna.
