Pet Portraits : Snoop
Digging up old posts at 8p is basically my jam. I'm not sure when I banked this post and if I was going to try to promote my pet portrait side gig or just write about it. I painted this golden retriever for an Instagram acquaintance (and because if she ever features it, she has a fuckton of followers). But I didn't do it just for her to feature it, I did it for practice and because this is an adorable fucking picture. The more animals I paint, the better I become. I was just looking at an old one and was sort of surprised at how proud of it I was at the time...it hangs in my mom's bedroom, so I have all the time in the world to check out the flaws. So here is a little photo journal of the steps to make Snoop come to life. He was super fun to do and I know his owner loves him. And yes, I'm always taking pet portrait commissions (fennarama at gmail dot com).
