Mootise, Portrait of a Dog

This is my latest painting still on the easel. Her name is Mootise and she is a Boxer. Boxers have very thin skin on their ears and hers were all ablaze in the sunlight this particular day, they also have very short, thin soft fur. This is especially true on their chest, where in many older Boxers often the pink skin underneath is visible. I think I captured the soul of this dog for under her sparse white fur you can see the glow of her heart. She was a gentle beauty and faithful watch dog. Note how the camera picks up different back ground colors with both photos of this painting, All the colors are there, reds, greens and yellows, but they will show up in different amounts based on the lighting in the room.
