Grommit, 8x8

"Grommit" 8x8" Pastel on sanded paper

So here is the final of the duo pet portrait! I don't usually paint portraits, but painting Grommit and Daisy have been a nice change of pace. Grommit is the more active of the two dogs which made it difficult to get a good photo of him because of his wiggles. He was also much more challenging to paint than Daisy because of all those expressive muscles on his face. Gotta get that expression right!

Thanks Lorianne and Celeste.
Grommit is really a funny doggie, and I say this lovingly. He is so much fun to observe and play with. Always getting into trouble with his older doggie companion!
