This is Mini, the yorkshire terrier. I worked on her portrait just a week ago. The client commissioned this painting as a Christmas present for his wife. I loved the photograph the client provided for this portrait. The red cushion in the background added a lovely warm contrast to the whites and greys of Mini’s fur. I detailed Mini’s head and worked the rest of the painting more loosely. The painting was 30 x 40 cm in size and painted with acrylics on stretched canvas.
The client was very happy with the painting:
Hi Ivana, Thank you so much, it is perfect. It really captures Mini. I know Lorraine will love it. Aaron
I took some photographs of the painting in progress and of the finished canvas.
