Cica the Dog

I believe this is one of my strongest paintings I have ever done. When beiginning a painting you never really know how it will turn out. You have to take a leap of faith and trust that you will do a good job. 

When painting Cica I chose to paint the underlaying colours first; now this is good in theory but it can also really knock your confidence because it makes the painting look strange and not so good. Therefore, you have to believe in yourself and keep a positive attitude until you can add the detail on top. Sometimes things have to look bad before they can look good.

I completed this commission in September 2019

You too could have a beautiful commission just like Cica. Capture the life and excitement of the animal that brings so much joy into your life.
