Shih Tzu Portrait - Dog by a Window

There are times when I start with a photo reference and end up surprised how well a very ordinary space turns out in the finished painting. The little lap dog loves to gaze out a window and although it is a side view, highlights were added to to face to make the dog look more lively. 

By creating a painterly background the window and the dog come to the forefront and keep our attention there. If you like to learn more about how to order a similar portrait click below.
