DEVELOPMENT OF A PET PORTRAIT
MEET  GYPSY

 
She is a wonderful girl with loads of personality.  Being a Terrier mix means that she has curiosity and energy to share.  Since her care-taker/companion is a Master Technical Director for the local Community Theatre, puppy GYPSY spent many days as a "theatre girl" over-seeing and assisting in the construction of theatrical stage settings.  She quickly became a welcome mascot and ambassador of good will.

When creating GYPSY's portrait I began, as I do with all portraits, with the eyes.  I find a connection with the image when it is looking back at me as work progresses.  Here is a photo of the first sketch lay-out with emphasis on the eyes.  They will be refined later.
Gradually, I began to block in the shading and color areas to create dimension as shown in the next photograph.
More details and depth of color begin to bring contour to the face as seen in the following photo.
Still more work to be accomplished but the highlights and shadows are beginning to take shape.
