Bella was the "Canine of Honor" in her owner's wedding ceremony. Thus the lovely bridesmaid collar. This portrait was comissioned as a wedding gift to the bride and groom. So sweet.
Oil on 8"x8" canvas.
When I do pet portraits I usually work from photos that the owner has taken. I'm careful to grid off the reference photo to get the dog's proportions just right. You can see other pet portraits on my website, clairehenningart.com
