Oliver's Sunny Dog Painting: 2 Days in 6 Minutes
This beautiful golden dog was a perfect sun-drenched subject for a dog painting that went on to become a beloved Christmas gift.
In the reference photo, I loved how the greens of the water contrasted Oliver’s warm golden fur, but I didn’t like how other elements in the background broke up his silhouette. For the painting, I kept the green but simplified it down to just a hint of water, and let Oliver be the star of the piece.
