Samson at 10 years old

It's been a very long time since I've shared any of my work, and so thought I would share this portrait of Samson. Thanks for looking.

My favorite breed!! This is an outstanding piece -- love the look in his eyes. I really admire how you have captured him so well and your use of color!!

Re: Samson at 10 years old

Thank you Brenda. This was a fun one, I was able to visit with him and take my own photos. Makes it easier I think.

Kay, thank you! That is so kind of you, and very encouraging to me for continuing to learn my craft.

Re: Samson at 10 years old

WOW....yes those colors do sing...just lovely; the look in his eyes is wonderful. Amazing details and technique. Your website is great; such a stunning collection of paintings. Is this one in acrylic and watercolor? I see you also paint in oil.

Re: Samson at 10 years old

Hey Ollie! Nope, this painting is watercolor only along with some detail lines of permanent ink. (pigma pens) I have a hard time resisting the fine lines.

Thanks for the compliment on the website. I'm having fun when I'm not frustrated at not being a master already.

I agree! I like this so much. The wild and playful way you composed this piece matches Samson's character I'm sure!

Re: Samson at 10 years old

Ann, JP, Ellen, Jan and Robert: Thank you for your so-kind comments.

Samson is right around 10. He's so thin, for some reason he's not keeping his weight on, and so the intention was to capture a likeness while he's feeling good. What a wonderful dog. I love boxers!

Robert, I really enjoy the watercolors as they let me relax and stop planning everything like the oils make me do! Hope you're doing good! :-)
