At my studio, we offer pet portrait classes, and people often struggle with how to make their painting a little funkier than a traditional portrait. I realized that I didn’t have any samples that really gave them an idea of how to do that. While a traditional portrait can look great, and I still get people commissioning pet portraits from me in that style, I really do love when I get to play with color to bring out the personality of each person’s pet. So I decided to whip out a couple quick paintings as examples of how to do that, and I played with my new GoPro while I did it so that you could watch the process. Here’s the first video (the link is below the picture):
