I just finished a commissioned puppy portrait of Maya – a gorgeous Great Dane. My client purchased this painting as a birthday gift for her friend, Maya’s owner. I always like to have a few paintings going at once so I’m not sitting there watching paint dry, so, while I was at it, I also did two other pet portraits. One is a portrait of Juno, a lab mix puppy owned by my good friends the Carrolls, and I also did a portrait commemorating my much missed cat, Daisy.
All three of these paintings are combinations of monoprints, collage and watercolor. I love the unexpected effect created by both the collage and the monoprint. You never know what you’re going to get, but it’s usually something good!
