Chloe (20x20)I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to have a commission picked up. This has been my hardest piece yet. Yellow and gold dogs have always been tricky for me, but this one seemed extra tough.The photo was backlit (so her face was in the shade and some of her body looked way darker then she was in real life).We also want to capture the beach in the background since the family had so many happy memories with Chloe there. And, I wish I knew why, some paintings come easy and flow together (my favourites) and some are more of a struggle, where I feel like I’m playing chess with the canvas. Thankfully, I think I won this one, and I’m very happy with the results. I hope her family is happy too
