Little Sophie

An adorable little 15 year old Jack Russell cross. Reference photo courtesy of her owner, Christine Coffey. This one I started off - as I quite commonly do - with a very thin acrylic underpainting just to establish the dark values. And I sort of got carried away and ended up painting the whole of Sophie in two acrylic colours + white. I then moved to oils but just used them for the background as I didn't feel they would add anything to the dog.
Last blog post for this week. Have a great weekend and thank you for looking at my paintings.
