Whippet & Vizsla Portraits in Oil

What fun it was to paint these two portraits! They are actually my very first Whippet and Vizsla! I really want to make it my goal this year to add several new dog breeds into my repertoire, although I still will be painting my much loved Westies, Golden Retrievers, Bernese Mountain Dogs, etc. Each portrait is 8"x10", oil on stretched canvas with the edges painted black.(SOLD, thank you!10% donated to Coalition to Unchain Dogs.)

  1. These guys are wonderful! I can decide which one I like best, both have such delightful personalities.

  2. Beautiful. I did a graphite of a Vizsla before Christmas. Such beautiful dogs.

  3. Thank you! I'm really thrilled with how they turned out...the Vizsla took me hours to do as the coloring is so unique, but I'm really happy with the end result & the owner is too! :)

  4. This are both amazing portraits. I love whippets and think you captured their personalities with this portrait.
