It’s taken me some time, but I’ve finally finished my latest portrait commission of the adorable Marley. It’s oil on canvas, approx 1’x 2′ in size.

I learnt a lot painting this, challenged by a busy, distracting background on the reference photo, challenged to make flatter areas interesting through paint and, as ever, challenged to bring together an accurate likeness through expressive marks. I’m happy with the result and am so pleased that the boy’s grandmother, who commissioned me, was blown away by it, followed up with his parents who received it as a present.
