Lulu was my first commission. She was a lovely, and well-loved, Weimaraner. The photos I had for reference were miniscule - really. They were the size of photo booth pictures. And I had no computer at that time. The result was that I ended up painting her fourteen times!!! So A few more rounds with Maddy is nothing by comparison.
|This is how she stands now, perhaps a bit darker and warmer.|
|Another sketch, same head. I have another photo of her with her neck extended, but the eye expression is not as pleasing.|
So here I go for round #2!
