I paint from photographs so the key to a great painting...is a great photograph! Natural lighting (prefer having it taken outside). Close-up of the eyes and fur color help me capture he/she the best.
Here are a few steps of my progress along the way.
Working on the eyes here...I spend a lot of time on them.
Most of the main pieces are in place...now for the details.
This is the original photograph I used... and it's a great example of a great photo!
The lighting is great (outside natural)...eye's are clear, and I can see her fur and coloring well.
Not to mention her expression is priceless!
