Heather’s Gumbo

Heather’s Gumbo

Originally uploaded by tagscats

This piece I finished on Christmas day. It’s a portrait for a fellow EBSQ artist, Heather Sims. We meant to swap dog portraits for the 2008 EBSQ Pet Portrait swap, and both got overwhelmed, so ended up finishing our portraits in time for the EBSQ Better Late Than Never Show.

So, this is my entry and my portrait of Heather’s beautiful collie pup, Gumbo. We decided to swap as we both have dogs named Gumbo, though mine is a JRT. It was so much fun painting her Gumbo, he’s so lanky! I decided to put him on a fun size of canvas, this is an 8″x24″ stretched canvas. He’s done in oils, with a very limited palette, only titanium white, ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, and a bit of cinnabar.

Feel free to visit the Better Late Than Never Show, and vote for your favorite piece, it’s free to become a patron of EBSQ! Only 2 more days to vote on this show!
