Remi the Rottweiler

The original reference photo.
 I don't often show the photo reference as I tend to ad lib a bit and often use several photos to come up with your ideal portrait.
 Your  portrait will look like your pet but may not look exactly like the photo.
The photo was lovely but not very sharp.
I wanted the portrait to be more alive and colourful than the photo and for her to be the star so I downplayed her collar.
I generally check to see if you are ok for me to make your portrait more colourful. I can do a copy of the photo but I feel my method generally improves on the photo! 

The finished portrait.
Remi's portrait is an engagement present.  
She is a 20 x 25cms image size Pastel

The custom framed portrait ready to hang.
