Dog Series: 'We Walk the Beach'

'We Walk the Beach'
10 1/2" X 14"
by Eileen Gidman

We walk the beach, my Mom and I. Some photos of me, the dog, were sent to artist, Eileen Gidman  of the lovely places my Mom and I go walking and running. I am especially fond of the one below, with me fetching sticks in a creek.

Here is a close up so you can see how happy I look.

Also there was a photo of me silhouetted in front of a lake with some coloured trees in the background. My Mom especially liked this one and I do have a handsome profile. In the painting colour study though, Eileen was not liking the orange and black combination.

So this one of me in front of a stunning ocean scene was selected. I think I posed quite nicely.

Below is a photo of the artist's studio. Kind of messy don't you think! However there are three pictures of me (a black and white copy, one on the screen, and the started painting) so that helps.

 Sometimes the artist has to search for just the right yellow. 

 There is something put on the painting called masking that covers all the areas that are to stay white.

Completed painting. I was told the artist painted my collar a brighter red (a complement to the green) to draw the attention to me in this painting. Did it work?

Oh this is another gem in your 'I Own my Human' series. I love the sleek look of his coat, especially, and it's obvious that he a a very special friend!
