New Pug Painting – The Smiling Pug ~ A75

Hi everybody!


I am so excited to share the latest pug painting I just finished.


He is a Smiling Pug and he makes me happy!


Look at those crooked pug teeth!
Last week I showed you the process of how I create my paintings, and I thought it would be fun take pictures along the way of this new one while I was in the flow…
Pencil sketch on my Hemlock Wood Panel

First layers of fur and shading have begun!

The expression is starting to come to life!

Next step: The Smile!

Oh he is coming to life!

Next steps: The background and fine lines…

I think the blue makes him pop with a feeling of a sunny day!

and the final lines just finish him off.

Ta Da!

He is now officially Pug A75 on my website and can be put on any of my products that you can choose the design.
Thank you for sharing in the fun!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!

New Pug Painting ~ A74

Hi everyone!
I am so excited to show you the little fawn pug I painted yesterday.
She is the first painting of 2010, and I really love her expression!
It is so exhilarating when the energy to paint comes over me.
I cannot paint everyday and in fact, it has been several months since I have created a painting.
I have documented how I create my paintings for you on my website.
It always feels like magic to me.
I go into a wonderful quiet place where I hear the birds chirping and when I look up, a new little face is staring back at me from my art table!
She is now officially Pug A74 on my website and can be put on any of my products that you can choose the design.
Emmitt seems to like her.  He just offered her a piece of meatloaf with little roasted potates and extra ketchup on the side.
I think he has made a new friend!
Have a super day everyone!
