Hattie 9X12 Oil




This is a small oil painting that I did "as a favor" for one of my students. I say "favor" because I turn down these types of jobs almost weekly. It's not that I don't enjoy drawing dogs or animals, I just don't like drawing or painting PETS . . . so don't ask, it was a one time deal. Just kidding . . . but seriously don't ask.

It was fun to paint, I slightly exaggerated the features, but I didn't go too far because the dog had enough character as is. I really loved the dogs eyes so I wanted to direct the attention on the right eye. I used a limited palette for this and painted it all with a large and medium sized filbert brush. The palette I used was Ivory Black, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red, and Titanium White. I did this painting in two sessions, one quick session where I put down a thin block in or under painting. And then a second session bringing it to a finish.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I'm nearly finished with a large illustration that I have been painting for GOLF magazine. I'm very excited about it, and feel it's my best illustration yet. I pushed myself a lot with this job and hope to show art directors what I can "really" do if given more then a day or two to complete a job. I'll be sure to post the art as well as process as soon as I have permission to do so. Thanks for stopping by and check back soon for new art!

Expertly done, Jason. It's very fresh looking; I really like what you did with the white fur throughout. It reminds me of something Sargent would do.

I don't blame you for not enjoying pet paintings. I'm not fond of doing them either - mostly because I'm not emotionally attached to the subject so I find them boring to do. Give me the funny!

Looking forward to seeing your golf piece. I haven't written you before, so I thought I'd mention that I'm really taken with your work. Nice stuff all around.

Nice piece, Jason. I LOVE doing animal paintings/drawings, and dogs are one of my favorite subjects. This one turned out really nice.
