Missy - color by Olvium Missy - color by Olvium
My awesome dalmatian dog, called Missy. I adore her! :heart:

Missy is a huge part of my world, without her my world is simply incomplete. I think, every pet owner can relate to this statement, our pets are our true unconditional friends!

This was my fifth acrylics on canvas painting but the first large one.
Took me more than 12 hours in total to finish, and I'm quite pleased with the result.

Based on one of the photos of Missy that I took.

I had the same dog. Her name was Hilda. So I like very, very much this picture.
My Hilda dies from cancer 2 years ago. I miss her.

But I hope that you do feel better.

what a genuinely honest piece of art, you appear to have captured the essence and spirit of your dog, she seems to have a gentle soul, beautiful canine.

:) You've got a lovely dog.

The paws are great! The face is also very good. Just the ears seem a bit to thin, but I'm more used to ears that half stand befor toppeling over :D

Thank you :hug:, about the ears, she often holds them in such way (very close to the head) and because of the low perspective of the painting they may look a bit small.

I believe this is my favorite :) The shadows in the drapery are very well done and your pup is just adorable and looks very realistic!

What kind of acrylics do you use? I only ask because your application looks very thin and I think you might really enjoy using heavy body acrylics. You can play around with a lot more neat effects than you can with the thinner ones. Golden is my favorite but liquitex heavy body is a close second and much more affordable. Give it a shot!

For this one I used Pebeo Studio and Winsor&Newton Galeria acrylics, and I think you are right, I did not used a lot of layers here therefore the application looks thin. I definitely will use your advice!

Looks amazing. I've always loved thee nature of acrylics cus you don't have to blend to achieve realism ya know.

Actually, I do blend acrylics a lot, it's hard but this is the only way to achieve a unique color scheme and also more than 6 or 12 colors you have in one set.
