8"x10" acrylic on masonite

Another commission finished. Now I just need to frame it.


  1. Beautiful Brad! So much strong character and lovely colors. Great painting!

  2. Hola Brad, me gusta cómo has logrado centrar la atención hacia la mirada del perro dejando el cuerpo algo menos trabajado que la cara. También me gusta la manera en que has salpicado la luz en el fondo, rodeando la oscuridad del pelaje. Has conseguido un retrato que capta el carácter del animal y a la vez es muy cálido, muy cercano, muy lleno de vida.

  3. Thank you Margarita! I appreciate the fact that you have noticed those elements of my painting. It was a poorly lit, low res photo that I was working with. So it was hard to see the details. For this reason, I got a bit creative with it and tried to work the composition to be more interesting. By using color, light and detail I tried to make the viewer focus on the elements that mattered, "the dogs head".

    I always appreciate your feedback Margarita! It always means alot to me.

  4. Wow, Brad! Your selective lighting on the background really brings Gage to life! Super nice!
