Gypsy

Gypsy
6" x 8"

This is our border collie/blue heeler mix, Gypsy. Its extremely difficult to get her to sit still and pose, especially outside, but she laid down long enough for me to get a couple photos. This is the first time I've ever painted a dog, it turned out better than the chickens attempted once before, but I still have a lot to learn...

  1. Gypsy's painting is beautiful! Nice handling of light and shadow on a black and white dog. I bet she took off immediately after you snapped the picture.

  3. Love the autumn backdrop Gypsy is thinking about leaving on the run. A fetching scene.

  4. Hi,

    When I see a black & white dog, seldom I don't think about TIM, the dog from The Five series (dunno if this was the original title).
    I really like how you convincingly give the impression that he's observing something.

    Kind regards,

    José
