Painterly chicken portraits

 These fun portraits of a couple of my pet chickens are done on watercolor paper.  Paper is not my usual surface for acrylics as it is more of a challenge to work on than canvas and has a much different texture, but ever since I started my mixed media sketchbook it has grown on me.

Boomer's portrait update

 The painting of Boomer the Bernese is coming along!  All that's left to do is paint in the details on his face and a few touch-ups here and there.

First stage of Boomer's portrait

 This is Boomer, a sweet Bernese Mountain Dog who is sadly no longer with us.  I was asked to paint Boomer's portrait for his human family who misses him so much.

I am finished with the block-in stage and have already begun adding details.

From the Sketchbook - Deer study 13 years later

  I've always wanted to repaint or redraw one of my old pieces, and what better time to do it than on the 10 year anniversary of GSC Artwork?

I chose to paint a deer fawn, an animal I painted way back in 2009 when I was just learning to paint.  Both are done in acrylics in a loose style, both are in sketchbooks, and I even painted the signature with red paint not knowing that I had done the same thing 13 years ago!
