Jada is a rescued cocker. The painting is a surprise for her owners who are getting married at the end of this month. Their very good friend/dog sitter had it commissioned. I think this is only the second black dog I have painted. I tinted the canvas blue and decided to make her highlights violetish/purplish. She has some white areas in her coat so those are not bright highlights. She is a beautiful dog and I bet the bethrothed are going to be thrilled with this gift. It is painted on an 8 x 8" gallery wrap canvas.
I have been busy the last three days working on a 4 x 5' commissioned piece. Have never painted that large but it has been a good learning experience. If I get a good image of it I will post.sold
