"SCOUT" 93/101 OF 101 PET PORTRAITS IN 101 DAYS © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Scout"
6"x6" oil on slightly textured panel
SOLD
Scout is a pet kid of some friends of Michael Hofman.  He is getting a couple friends some pet portraits as a gift.  WHAT A NICE FRIEND!  I love these faces there the pups have their face right in the camera and they are obviously happy...Michael sent me a couple photos but lets me pick...the face just says...I love you...UNCONDITIONALLY! 

Scout is a fauvist dream...orange, green, purple, yellow! WOO HOO!  His beautiful brown eyes and that sweet come hug me face.  The colors in Scout may be a little off...they are not as bright and strong as here...but buttery.  It has been raining and the light is terrible for photographs!

Notice how the colors change ever so slightly with just the slightly different light in each photo.  I'll try to give you the closest to accuracy as I see them on my monitor!  What a challenge it is sometimes!

 This is TOO BRIGHT in the colors...the light was really dark in this photo, so my changes to get the VALUES correct make the background colors way too bright...think these colors only buttery...ha.  This easel is one I found at Hobby Lobby.
The background colors here are closer to actual...see the difference...the buttery look...however...the changes in the photo lightened Scout's colors a bit too much! HA!  The frame is a floater frame you can find at pictureframes.com.  CF1
This is the maple floater frame; CFS10.  I think color is pretty ok here...Scout MAY be a little darker than in this photo.
Gold Leaf floater frame; CFS3. I think this version edited about the same...but the background is a bit better here...FUN DOINS!

HAPPY CREATING!
