German Shepherd Portrait in Pastel


Mondo
8 x 10 pastel

SOLD


I am so excited that I can share this beautiful boy with you!  Mondo is such a beautiful German Shepherd and I was thrilled when I was commissioned to paint him.

The lighting in this painting is so calm and warm, and sets a beautiful soft scene.  The original photo was taken outside in evening light, which is perfect for those beautiful references.

I had started recording the process, but technical issues interrupted the recording.  I might be able to salvage the beginning.

Please be sure to check out the contact info on the right as well as other examples of pet portraits if you're interested in having your own commission!

German Shepherd Pet Portrait in Oil


Buddy, German Shepherd
16 x 20 Oil on canvas

SOLD


Oh boy! I'm so excited I can finally share Buddy!  He's a German Shepherd and he actually lives in Germany!  How crazy is that for a Canadian girl to send off a German Shepherd painting to Germany?

Buddy is the loyal companion of an elderly couple who love this boy very much.  I'm told they treat him like he was their child.  You can tell by his eyes that he is one very happy boy.  I can't wait to find out their reaction once they see him.  This painting is a gift so it'll be a complete surprise.  I'm also grateful they won't see it online, so it was safe to post.

I'll be working on a large cat commission soon as soon as we have the references worked out, but in the mean time, I'll be back to share another dog painting soon as well as a cat I'll be doing in pastels. I'm itching to do more pastels and will create a video with it.

Thanks for looking!

P.S.  Have a look at this other German Shepherd commission I painted a few months back, just in case you hadn't seen it.
