Oil with a palette knife on Ampersand Gessobord
36" x 18"My friend Ann commissioned this painting for her husband's birthday. She sent me the photo she had taken that she wanted me to paint from and I could picture it on this size canvas immediately. I wanted the focus to be on the dogs while still creating interest with their surroundings using depth, color, and atmosphere.
Here are some closer up shots of the doggies. They are such happy Goldens in their happy place-water!
