Toy Poodle Portrait

Toy Poodle Portrait and his name is Tommy.  His owner was having trouble getting him to sit still long enough to get his photo. A treat in hand and an assistant really helps when a dog is always on the go. 

The curly breeds are a bit more challenging to paint than the short haired breeds such as a labrador.  Soft pastels as a medium is great to work with in achieving the soft bouncy curls.
