Ollie and Sadie Belle

photo reference

10"x8" acrylic on masonite

Another dog portrait commission... It's always challenging to use multiple references, but overall I am happy with the results on this one. I adjusted the placement of the upside down dog and played with the lighting a little bit to make for a more interesting composition.


  1. Hello Brad. I think you make the owners of these dogs very happy with this painting. It's like the dogs have laying there as models for you! Very beautiful painting!

  2. Nice Brad! I imagine it would be a challenge, getting all that volume on all that white fur, but it looks spectacular. I really like how you handled the cushion. Very effective. Great palette!
