My cousin Elizabeth asked me to paint a picture of her boyfriend’s beloved companion, Jake. Jake died unexpectedly this past year, so this is a pretty important request.
I finally found the time to begin. I have started with a loose line drawing, and I think I have captured his boxy nose and his doggy smile. But I can’t decide if I want to go with a detailed colored pencil approach or my usual loose marker/acrylic paint style. I am leaning towards the latter.
I took a picture with my phone this morning, and here it is. What do you think?
