Pet Portrait Time Lapse Painting

Painting Oliver: 2 Days in 6 Minutes

This beautiful golden dog was a perfect sun-drenched subject for a Christmas Art 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.

This video shows the painting process start to finish!

Oliver is now hanging out with lots of other pet paintings online in my Pet Portrait Gallery, and with his owner and real self offline.
