Thank you for perusing my website and Welcome! I have been painting and drawing for years; first with watercolors and then with acrylics, and specializing in painting dogs the last few years. We have 3 rescue Chihuahua mixes, Chachi, Bella, and Jojo. I also have a small dog boarding and daycare service in our home. I love taking tons of pictures and videos of all the doggies, so have plenty of material from which to paint!
Am currently doing Digital Painting, and became hooked on painting with Procreate. I love how clean the Ipad is! No setting up paints, pencils, paper or canvas, water, brushes, etc., every time I want to paint; and then trying to keep the dogs from stealing my pencils or getting paint on their fur! It still takes me about 10 hours to complete a Digital Painting, so it certainly does not do the work for you!
You may also be interested in commissioning a portrait of your pet, or of a friend's pet as a gift. I would need a clear, well-lit photo of your pet, as well as a few other photos from different angles.
