This is a commissioned painting of 2 adorable King Charles spaniels that was recently finished. It was definitely one of my most challenging paintings. I visited the client and took many photos of the dogs. Although I had many images to choose from to build the composition, I still needed to piece things together in Photoshop to create a composition that worked for us.
This photo does not do the painting justice mostly because of the original size of the painting. I needed to even out the background color in Photoshop because the light in the photo was unevenly distributed. The actual background has more variety in the blues, more texture.
Proof that going to an art show is worth the effort. Especially if you are viewing larger works.
