And in the Beginning There Was Coral (con't.)...Golden Retriever Pet Portrait Painting in Oil

I am now blocking in the color on my portrait of Coral which I will continue with today. I will then block in the background and then start working on the details. I usually always start with the eyes, then mouth, and so on. It is still very rough at this stage, but it gives you an idea of where I am up to and where I am going :) To see the initial sketch scroll down a bit, past the Scottie painting or click here. If you are interested in having your pup's portrait done, or would like to have a piece commissioned for someone special, feel free to contact me!
