Painted Portrait of Girl with Dog

Madison’s black lab doesn’t usually like water, but we coaxed him into the creek for this gorgeous portrait moment. I used my traditional artistic training and recent training in painting digitally to create this masterpiece.

Regarding the original portrait: We had Madison stand in the water to coax the pup towards her. Even thought he generally doesn’t like water….it worked! Yes, he was back out of the water within a minute… But, I was able to capture this priceless moment. I initially wasn’t even sure we had captured him looking at the camera!
