Greyhound (3)

oil painting, brindle, greyhound, pet portrait by Karen
A little painting that I found more complex to paint than I expected. All the colours turned out to be quite similar and my dog kept disappearing into the Chesterfield (I imagine that is what he is lying on). His brindle coat was a challenge to paint in one sitting, as brindle markings always are - the transition from brindle to boggy being unpredictable and usually swift. I used a fair bit of Cad Yellow Deep to try and redeem the unremitting brown and warm everything up a bit. Hope you like him.
Last painting for this week. Thank you for looking at my paintings. Have a great weekend.
