King Charles Cavalier Puppy Portrait – “Precious”

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Puppy
6 x 6 oil on canvas panel
SOLD (please inquire about other animal paintings)

I saw this little pup last weekend and begged the owner to let me take a picture. I always enjoy doing animal studies and the challenge of fur and dramatic lighting made it a special treat. The long floppy ears look so much like Titian-style hairdos. If a dog can be glamorous, this one is.

This small study is preparatory for a larger work including both the pup and its young master. Wouldn’t this little painting make a wonderful Valentine’s present for a dog lover?

    Oh, look at that little face. I can see why you just had to paint it. Its lovely. I firmly believe in doing preparatory drawings and paintings before tackling the real thing. I can work out all my mistakes, correct colours and values, composition, etc. Its always a useful exercise.
