PET PORTRAIT: HEAD STUDY

This is an example of a pet portrait painted as a "head study". The format works very well with smaller sized works because it shows more detail than a "full body" portrait painted on the same size paper.

The most important part of any portrait is the head and facial expression, especially the eyes. One of the last things I add to such a painting is the eye highlights. These small details bring the pet to life.
