Today is my first posting of a step-by-step process I take to complete some of my paintings. Watch this blog to see how I have created other works of art.
Here is the original photo of "Mickey" which I referenced to complete his painted portrait. When I started this painting, Mickey was a senior dog waiting for adoption. After I finished the painting below, and it was shown around online, Mickey was adopted by someone who saw his portrait!
I use a painting technique from the European "Old Masters" who painted in oils, but I have adapted this approach to the use of modern acrylic paint.
Hope you enjoyed this painting tutorial. Questions and Comments are welcome!

Just an artist rambling on about her love of art, dogs, and pet adoption. And I also like to share cool dog videos, photos, and some famous quotes I like.
