Tara is a wonderful labrador retriever which I painted on her owners wish. Owner keeps a dog portal so we exchanged our businesses: a portrait for a banner. I got a very nice reference photo so it was a delight to do. See what the client thought about the portrait after they recieved it!
I just had to come back at you. My husband surprised me today when he said you posted Tara on your website, I’m very proud and happy! Thank you very very very much for her portrait! My husbands colleague at work said he doesn’t believe it’s a portrait, he believed it was a photo! They had a long discussion about who was right. I think that says it all!
Tara is not so preety and happy as in the portrait cause she got sterilized at monday. She got her elizabethan collar against licking so she’s all hurt and angry. But, in a day or two she’ll be her old self!
See how the reference photo and close up details looked like.
