Another Pug!!! This is Lola


This is a painting of my friend's little pug, named Lola.  I also painted another of her pugs -- whose name I can't remember right offhand! She's coming up in the next post.

The original of Lola is already sold, but prints and pendants are available.  I really enjoyed painting her - what a sweet little face.

Beautiful paintings. Do you have any dvd's for sale with lessons on how you paint your animals?

Hi, Justme:

Thanks for your comment. No, I can't imagine creating a video of me at work. I don't think it would be helpful anyway because I don't think I have any repeatable method when I paint. I just draw in the image, start roughing in everywhere, and gradually refine what I've roughed in. Regarding color, it just happens; I don't have a plan at all; I just do what comes naturally to me. Wish I could be of more help. Maybe in a few years I'll know what I'm doing . . .
