Axel and Kaiser

This is a painting of two rottweilers that I completed before Christmas. It was commissioned by their owner as a present for his partner. They are Axel and Kaiser. The painting was a large 50 x 60 cm in size painted with acrylics on fine stretched canvas. The client was very happy with the finished portrait:

Hi Ivana,

Oh my god i cant believe how well that has turned out. I am actually speechless!!!. My partner is going to love that. You have perfectly captured the two boys…

I took some photographs of the painting in progress and the finished piece.

Rottweiler Portrait in Progress

This is a new dog portrait I have started working on yesterday. It is of a beautiful rottweiler called Robin who has sadly passed away after her battle with cancer. She was only six years old. The client has commissioned her portrait as a present for his wife, Robin’s owner. I’m sure Robin is missed terribly. The client has provided me with lots of good quality photographs so I can really capture Robin’s personality in the painting.

The portrait is a medium size of 30 x 40 cm (12 x 16 inches) and I am painting it with acrylic paints on stretched canvas. I have completed the first stage of the portrait which consists of a one colour sketch to establish the likeness and the basic shapes in the image. I will carry on adding washes of colour next together with the background.
