Since the new year I have been busy painting. My next commission, I can now reveal, was a gift for Mothers Day, so it had to stay under wraps until the special day! Here is Gigi, she is the most adorable French Bulldog. I painted her using acrylic on a 70cm x 70cm canvas. Her owner gave me a very specific colour palette to work with as it is to hang amongst other art in her house, see the other pictures. Gigi's favourite walk is the leaf made from a map. She loves football and tennis balls so these are shown in the heart above her head. This has been framed in wood using the same Navy as the background.
This girl is in the works, hoping to have her done by the weekend. It’s a memorial painting and those always seem to take me a little longer.... it’s like I want to be sure to capture her essence. I’ll show the final after her owner picks her up.
