Yorkshire terrier (yorkie) painting
12 x 12

I painted this larger- than-life portrait of a Yorkshire terrier using acrylic paint on a deep profile canvas. This popular breed dog is often seen in public in dresses and costumes, but I opted to paint as is.

I started out painting three of these, all using the same reference photo. I stopped the first painting after I had painted the basic outlines of the dog on one canvas. I stopped the second canvas after I finished the complementary colors that give my work its vibrant colors. I finished the third canvas, which is this.

The card based on this painting are available at my etsy shop.
