Guinea Pigs!

Guineas
6" by 8"
Oil with a palette knife on canvas board
SOLD

After all of the cats and dogs that I have been painting lately, this was a fun challenge. I tried to make sure to push the difference in their fur color and I also exaggerated the eyes and noses a bit so you could more clearly make out their faces amongst all the fur. Especially fun was painting the colorful blanket that they were sitting on. I thought about simplifying it at at first, but then, decided it added some nice color and interest to the composition.

The guineas are really cute. Your use of a colorful background really sets them off.
