Portrait of a Golden Retriever in acrylic paint

Dierportret-in-acryl-Golden-retriever-Paddy-30x40cm.jpgA nice next assignment completed in acrylic paint on size 30 x 40 cm. The client very much wanted to have an animal portrait made of her parents' dog. She wanted to give it as a present for their 50th wedding anniversary. Paddy is a sweet Golden Retriever of almost 5 years old and loves to cuddle, likes to find his own way when going out but listens well. Likes to be outside and likes the woods. 

1.jpgI built up the painting in thin layers of acrylic paint to give it more depth. The background is painted in abstract natural tones and the foreground is more detailed. I painted Paddy very realistically. The blurred background makes Paddy stand out nicely in the painting. A beautiful dog and a joy to portray!
