Back to oils… Commission of 2 Schipperke’s

I haven’t worked in oils in a while, I was almost afraid to take them out! I suppose it’s like riding a bike, right? Well, it is turning out to be the case… I fell back into it easily. (thank god!) A difficult subject, 2 black dogs. Luckily I got a chance to meet these beauties and shot them outside with my camera so I could get some nice colors in their coats. This is an 11 x 14″ oil on canvas, a work in progress shot… I am still working on them, and will determine what to do with the background as well. The client likes mossy sage greens… I am pretty sure I can work that in :-).
