Introducing to you is Nana 11, pet portrait #11 in the pet painting art project. She has such a dainty and graceful look with her sleek coat and compact body. I'm not sure the breed of this dog, maybe the owner will come back to let us know. She looks like a Whippet/Italian Greyhound and appears to have a body built for speed.
I ended up doing this one in a similar painting approach as my dog Sirius. It's an expressive, painterly style with obvious brush strokes in it. Since she is a dark furred dog, I chose to work with a very deep bluish purple for the main part of her body. I'm very pleased with the color result for this little lady.
I am finding that I enjoy the freedom of working in the expressive style and think I will be exploring more in my future artwork.
Nana is done in acrylic on 9 x 12 unframed canvas and is currently for sale at only $75.00. I will also offer this art at my Zazzle store designed on great products. High quality prints of my artwork is available with your choice of custom framing directly from my Imagekind gallery.
