As I mentioned in the last post for Oliver the Black Standard poodle - black is a hard color to paint when it comes to dogs. But I have to change my thoughts on that as now I'm of the opinion that white is really really really hard :) Add too much browns and grays and the dog looks either dirty or dull. And yet I needed to add subtle shading to contour the face.
Hank is an unshaved Schnauzer whose ears have not been cropped. He is a happy boy who has dancing dark eyes that are covered in most of his photos. The owner of Hank sent a lot of photos but in most of them he looked like a cotton ball. I was tempted to do a mixed media - glue a few cotton balls on the canvas and call it a day... :) But I persevered and finished this painting. It's actually a second re-paint. His owner was happy with the photo I've emailed to her. This painting is in the mail and on it's way to it's home in Southwestern Georgia.
