I spent a very cold day January day down in Southern Pines, NC at a Hunt Test. The clients had two gorgeous German Shorthaired Pointers who were participating and they wanted me to create a pair of oil paintings.
"Seth" and "Gretchen" were created on 14 x 18 canvases. The eye popping capabilities of oil are enhanced when the images are highlighted from the natural light of the sun. I like to fade the background and not have it compete with the foreground.
Loads of fun to create and the owners were delighted!
