New pet portrait commission

Dexter
10" by 10"
Oil with a palette knife on Blick Studio Artist Board

Samara saw my painting called "New Yorkie" and asked if I could do a similar portrait of her dog Dexter. Pets are such fun to paint with a palette knife, especially the fur and those ears! Can you even? I always hope to capture the animals personality even if I never actually meet them. I think you can probably tell that Dexter certainly has a lot of personality!

'Dexter' - Eye highlights when well placed - rivet the viewer and create memorable portraits. Kudos.
