Pet Portraiture is one of my passions! Each Pet Portrait is painted with an Acrylic & Oil Wash Technique. After a thin layer of oil paint is applied to the surface, I carefully erase out the highlights and then repeat with another layer of paint until rich colors are achieved. Most portraits require 8-10 layers of paint, and as oil paint is slow to dry, they take several weeks to complete. They are truly a labor of love!
