Very nice. Had you painted dog portraits before? Are you taking a picture of the dog first? Are these done with oils or acrylics? Sorry for so many questions, but inquiring minds wanna know! LOL

They are done with acrylic. I use photographs as a reference. I have been painting for a long time but the pet portraits for just a few years. I also paint floorcloths and other decorative items.

Oh, I thought you were painting them from looking at the dogs. Having them hold a pose would be a lot better I imagine. ha Great job on all of them. ~Anj

Marika, Cute pictures. Do you sell these or are they for family and friends? I had a lady paint my sisters 2 dogs together on a shingle and it turned out pretty cute. If you'd like to see it I'll take a picture sometime I'm at her home. Keep painting and posting so we can enjoy. For the longer dog hair have you tried a rake fan brush so you can see the finer hairs? I'm not good at animals but I think it would help and make painting them faster for u.
