My oil painting of a dog

Post by martinbernstein » Sat Apr 16, 2011 10:54 pm

This is an oil painting I made for my girlfriend's birthday. Its a portrait of Henry, her family's goofball golden retriever. I had her mom send me a photo of Henry and I worked of of that. I wanna do our tam next.

Thats brilliant :)
I commissioned a painting of my mums Malamute (that sadly passed away) for her birthday a few years ago, but it turned out pretty poor, didnt look a lot like him, think I could of done a better job myself (and I dont paint)

Thanks :) There are a lot of artists that do commissioned artwork, and they may be very creative but many can't draw or paint classically at all.

Very impressive. I thought it was a retouched photo at first glance. I would love to have a painting of Tundra done in her honor.

Thanks:) I've done a few commissioned dog portraits this fall and now I'm growing tired of painting dogs. But Henry was a pleasure to paint. He's got great colors.
