Animal Portraits in acrylic, pastel and oil
Painting Jenny's Portrait
Jenny's portrait was done in pastel on a 16X20 piece of board. First the sketch was done in charcoal directly from a photo sent
to me from her owners. Once I was satisfied with the accuracy, I moved on to creating the major shapes, darks and lights of the
head. From there I started focusing on layering and details of the hair. Then the details of the eyes were added along with the
reflections and then continuing with layering the hair working from dark to lights and finally highlights.
If you would like a portrait of your furry friend, drop me a note and I'd be happy to help you with a work of art that you'll cherish.
