Did you know that Skjonn is known as the “Angel Dog” or “Angel Girl?” As you can imagine, angels are nearly impossible to paint (lol!), but I did do something in the painting that I am not sure anyone can see. I implied a halo over her head in the clouds. Do you see it?
Not only is Skjonn one of those special canine beings every dog owner would cherish, she was also prematurely grey (and quite grey at age 13). I left this to the end and just lightly indicted some grey hairs around her mouth and on her mussel. Is it enough or too much?
There are lots of colors in this painting and I am wondering if there are too many colors? I think I corrected her eyes and then applied the various oranges for highlights. Let me know if any adjustments need to be made, colors altered, etc. She is definitely a happy dog with lots of energy, which I hope I have conveyed that, but only her owners know for sure.
…to be continued.
