Grouse with landscape

I worked on this painting a couple of weeks ago. It is of a springer spaniel called Grouse. He is a much loved family pet and the client has commissioned his portrait as a Christmas present.

The painting was 30 x 30 cm in size and painted with acrylics on stretched canvas. I added a landscape background the client chose. This worked really well I thought. It added some depth in the painting and I could really push Grouse to the front.

I took lots of photos when I was painting and of the finished portrait.
