I'd always wanted to do a pet portrait, I've been thinking about it ever since we adopted Bud, but thought I couldn't do it. So I kept avoiding it and then one day, I decided I wanted a portrait of him and started. Since I have never done a pet portrait I thought maybe I should take a class. And then I just stopped doubting myself and started believing in myself. Happy thoughts = Happy Natalie= Happy Painting! I think he turned out great. I added in his real details by just looking at him in person. In the picture his nose looks almost all black and it actually has a little bit of tan/pink and he he has a lot of gray's and white white hair that I added in. Here's the original picture of him!
Have a wonderful weekend and a HAPPY EASTER!
