On The Sofa - 16x16" Acrylic Painting

16×16 inch acrylic painting of a whippet

Stanley is such an elegant dog. I love the way he’s sitting with his paws crossed. There’s a warmth in his coat and a lovely soft light coming from the side, so I wanted to play with that theme. I started with warm colours for the underpainting and then added soft lilacs and blues for the final layers. The result is a painting that glows when the light is warm and sunny. It does make it quite hard to photograph though!

He’s a 16×16 inch painting in acrylics on Cornwall paper, painted using a brush, a knife and paint pens, unframed.
