Milo – terrier painting

Meet Milo! He is a very sweet terrier and I worked on his portrait a few weeks ago. His painting was a gift for his owner for Christmas commissioned by his wife. She wanted something a little bit different for her husband and bought a gift voucher for Milo’s portrait. The painting is 20 x 25 cm in size and painted in acrylics on stretched canvas.

I worked on a cerulean blue background as a complementary colour to the warm ochres and umbers I used in the fur. I left the blue poking out from under the warm tones of the painting. I hope you all like it 🙂

Milo had such a lovely inquisitive expression in the photo and I wanted this to translate in the painting. The photo was very detailed so I had a lot to work with. I am including some progress photos below together with the reference photo.

I have a few paintings just finished off my easel and I will be updating the blog over the next few days, so please keep checking 🙂
