An old school friend got in touch and asked me to do a painting of her pet dog Jasper.  After going through all the lovely cute photos she send me of Japser, I picked up certain features and character from each painting and put together a up close portrait of him.

He was a real joy to paint, I opted for the less cartoony, bold look and gone for smoother blending and thinner outlines. I’m rather pleased with the result, think I will try to paint more dogs from now on because they are such fun animals and you can add lots of personality in them. :)
