|"Maggie" - 12 x 12 inches - oil on canvas|
This is Maggie, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. This pet portrait was presented to the owner as a birthday gift from a friend who commissioned me to paint it. I'm happy to report that she was thrilled with the painting.
I started the painting with a bright orange background. I picked orange mainly because Maggie's coat has red/orange overtones and I wanted to punch up the color a bit. I also picked a grey-blue for the background color since blue is the complement to orange and makes the colors glow a bit more.
I love to paint animals and am happy to capture your furry loved ones on a canvas as a permanent keepsake. Click here to learn more.
