Finn – pet portrait contest winner


5″x 7″ pastel painting


This a portrait of Finn! Finn’s owner Christine K. won the recent pet portrait contest. I received great photos from Christine which made this a pleasure to paint. This was my first German Shepherd.

Painting fur and hair is always a bit tricky. I always struggle with it at the beginning until I stop thinking and “trying”.
The colors are a bit off even with a scanner, but close enough.
I’ll be mailing it to you this week Christine!
