Lovely Luna- King Charles Cavalier Spaniel

Postby BYart » Wed Jun 19, 2013 3:33 pm

I've started a new commission of this lovely Cavalier Spaniel, named Luna, and thought I would post the progress.
It is a 16 x 20 , acrylic on stretched canvas.
This is my progress thus far, and I will begin the detailing next.

here is my sketch. I'll be painting a complex background(rather than a blended) as well.


here you can see I'm beginning to lay in my darks, and you can see my ref. photo. I've also did some on her eyes(which i will detail more later)


In this step, I've layed in most of my background and will detail in later steps.


And here, I've layed in most of my base colors on Luna. Now on to the layers of detail!


More to come and thanks for viewing!

Thank you E, but not sure i'm the best of teachers, lol.
Nigel, thank you! Nice to hear from you!

I've got a bit more done, and hope to finish up tomorrow or Sat. My client is very happy thus far, so I'll proceed! :D
working my way down her body, adding layers of detail as I go. I'll be 'fixing" her left foot, so not to worry.
