View Full Version : Noah the Terrible

Finally painted one of my 'own' . . . Noah the Terrible, 11x14 oil on canvas. The most ornery little bichon there ever was, but even so, we love him and this one was really heart wrenching to paint. Not the best photo, but it's the best my Android could do.

Angie, I know from my own experience how hard it is to paint a beloved pet that is no longer with one. You have done a beautiful tribute to little 'Noah the Terrible'.

Such a dear. Very well portrayed. I can't, yet, bring myself to paint my little "Sweetie", who I lost a year ago, and know how you feel.

What a lovely tribute. It's so hard to lose a wonderful friend. You have also shown us that white is not white. That is something many struggle with. :thumbsup:

Beautiful, sweet portrait and a wonderful tribute. I love your treatment of the white fur which works so well with the dark background.

Thank you, everyone . . . he did have a sweet side that came out now and then in between his grumpiness and bully-ness . . . I took the reference one night while he was sitting on the couch and the lights that bounced off him just captivated me . . . it's my favorite photo of him, and even though it's not a great photo, looking at it reminds me of his alter ego and I forgave him all over again for each time he bit / snapped at me. And yes, it was a lesson in 'whites' . . . which really appealed to the 'artist' in me! Thank you all for your loving comments . . .
