Dachshund Portrait

Dachshund Portrait

A painting of a Dachshund curled up on a rug, I was desperate to start this painting because of the wonderful colours, and I wanted the face to leap out of the painting. Most of the painting is quite softly blended, to create a blurred effect, but the head and face have sharp edges and bold brush strokes, to focus the viewer’s attention. One of my favourites.
