Puppy Portrait by emietook
Puppy Portrait
I used [this] stock as a reference.

I wanted some desperately needed practice on painting dogs but I'd already painted my own puppy and even some of his siblings. I needed to paint something other than Irish Setters and was having some trouble getting photos of other breeds from friends, so I turned to the lovely DA stock section and saw this beautiful dog. This turned out so well I feel a lot more confident in painting dogs.

Oil on canvas. Original is 11" x 14"
  • Mood: Tired
  • Watching: Hell on Wheels
  • Playing: sadly nothing
  • Drinking: water
So hey I guess it's time for my once a year journal entry in which I inform you all nothing has changed, my artwork hasn't gotten any better, and I'm still a massive loser. Only more so these days I guess because I'm 30 now and everyone knows if you're not in your teens or twenties you're not worth a damn.

Despite all this I am still painting with the hopes that I'll sell them. Stupid I know, it hasn't worked before and yet here I am still plugging away at it. That's the definition of insanity isn't it? Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results? I guess this is me admitting insanity.

First step to solving a problem is admitting you have one, right?

I'll try to upload some things. I've said that before I know. But I'll still try.

If I fail again and don't update (and you know I will) I hope you all have a lovely year, and I'll see you next year with likely the same message!
