This is Ginger, a yellow Labrador Retriever that lives in NYC. Ginger is quite dapper with her red polka dot bowtie. I’ve packed up the painting and will ship it off on Monday to her owner.
Whenever I paint from photos, the prints lose a lot of depth and color. When working on this painting, I positioned my computer right next to my easel so I could see the image on the screen. I could still see details in shadow areas and it worked great.
