Bella is a sweet Maltese Cross dog, and her owner wanted to immortalise her in a painting! My client supplied the photo he took himself, and gave the painting to his wife as a Christmas gift. She is a keen and talented gardener, and Bella is depicted sitting among some of her plants.
I've never painted fur before, and it really wasn't any harder than feathers! I think the hardest part was figuring out the exact shade the shadows of the white were going to be. The leaves were a particular challenge. Somehow it ended up being as much a botanical study as it is a pet portrait.
SKILL LEVEL: Medium, designed for the person that likes a challenge, but does not want to be too challeng
