Ok so now I start with the painting of the background. I chose colors that are similar to the home that will be surrounding it. I like punchy colors and I like to do my paintings free flowing, not straight lines or perfect joints. Just let the brush flow softly and with dimension also with texture. Let the paint have texture cause it adds a feeling of three D.  So here you go.
This is the start of color.

How I Work a Painted Portrait.

So here is my next commissioned pc. This beautiful Lovely Frenchie is named Pudge, I am hoping you will all enjoy the progress on how the painting comes together.  I will show step by step how I do what I do. 

So step one is get many pics from the client. Then pick the best one for the portrait, then enlarge to size on my printer and tape together all parts, then I do a quick outline trace of the image, just to give me an idea of where everything is and goes.  

Then Step two I transfer that trace over to the canvas and that is where all the magic happens. The color starts to get applied. 
But that is another episode. lol so keep an eye out for it. Here are steps one and two.

Finally I have my new baby in my hands. She is solid and can't wait to start working on her to slowly get her to the look I want for her. The heart is strong and the body is straight. First things first, new rims and tires, second new exhaust pipes and then a loose tail light  wire and we are good to go cruising. wooooohoooooooo.
