Sally Mae Dog Portrait

I've just completed a new dog portrait, of "Sally Mae". It's a surprise Christmas gift for her dad from her mom, so don't tell if you know them! Take a look at the reference photos I took of Sally, using some of the tips I shared previously on photographing your pet. You can see which photo became my main reference, and how I simplified the background. Sally Mae is part of the same family as "Tom" who I painted two years ago, so I tried to make the format of the painting coordinate, to make a nice pair.
