Early in the Spring I was commissioned to paint a canvas of Arny, a very lively Jack Russell. The fun started when I visited the
terror terrier to take his photograph … … … he just wouldn’t sit still.
After a chase around the garden we went inside and after a bit of sofa hopping, Arny relaxed on the seat next to me with a dog chew and I managed to snap a photo of him, at last!
I like to take photos as I go along. Even though the painting can be right in front of me, it helps to see it from a different perspective.
I’m happy to say that I finished Arny’s portrait today, it’s now signed and photographed and is ready for delivery tomorrow. I’m nervously hoping Arny’s owners love the painting and hope I managed to capture his personality for them.
