Introducing portrait of Larry & Libby- my first completed in 2021 commission. After the reference photo was approved – I changes slightly dogs poses to make better composition, and I replaced a simple sofa on the photo with more elegant as my client wanted. I searched Internet for styles of sofas and was inspired. At the end I “created” my own- to be perfect in lines and colors for that portrait. I had to change dogs proportions also because on the photo they were slightly distorted probably cellphone was not hold straight when the photo was taken. Which reminds me that I should write a blog with recommendations on how to take better photos of your dogs, cats or any pets – as reference photo for the portrait painting.
