Fresh off the easel, still shiny and wet, an impressionistic landscape.  The reference photo for this painting came from the wonderful Wetcanvas reference image library.  But I would love to visit someday & have the chance to take my own photos.

The Portrait Process

Our dogs are like family to us, we spend our days together and they enjoy the lion’s share of our bed at night.  They are as individual and unique in their personalities as any member of the human race.  They have their favorites, they have their fears, and their love knows no end.

Gandolf – a pet portrait in oil on canvas by Joyce Brandon.

This portrait is of one such beautiful soul, and in this case I decided to take step by step photos of painting process. I then put them together in a mini video of the progress of grand old Gandolf’s portrait from start to finish.

 

Gandolf is portrayed in oils on an 11×14 inch stretched canvas.  Painted by Joyce Brandon. If you are interested in a custom pet portrait, you can contact me directly at joycebrandonart@gmail.com  or visit my Etsy store,  Joyce Brandon Art, to view further examples and pricing.
