"DOOLIN" 52/101 OF 101 PET PORTRAITS IN 101 DAYS © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

By now I'm sure you can see a pattern of sorts that has come through in my work on these pets.  I find I am fond of keeping whites where the animal is white as it is the lightest value I can come up with...but, if you really look closely, there is little that remains pure white as my brush pulls color around.  I also love to play with background colors...bright or straight from the tube...I will darken areas or lighten them, but I DO like those straight colors as the fauvist's did.  I will, and have with Doolin brighten a color that I "see" inside these animals...their eyes remain the same, but the rest is stronger and brighter.  FUN!

Doolin was a pet baby of my sister Terri Johnson's family.  Her brother brought him home as a rescue dog and he remained faithful and a guard dog the rest of his life!  He was especially fond of Terri's father and brother.  I love to see these animals rescued to go on and be wonderful companions and family members to others who will love them so!

Doolin has his own set of frame ideas as with the rest.  You can find frames like these "floater frames" at pictureframes.com in their floater frame sections.



HAPPY CREATING!

Great work, Saundra! I love what you can do even when working with lower resolution photos. Amazing, truly!

Thank you CrimsonLeaves. It is sometimes challenging with some photos, but I've not been afraid of that yet. :)
