The order of the day was”keep calm and carry on”
At least until the Coronavirus has been and gone.
Dave this visit is painting dogs in acrylic
His examples really are truly idyllic.
Ayrton a champion Red Setter was the first portrait
With a background of Mars Black and Cadmium Scarlet
Adding burnt umber and titanium white to shape the face
With every element in the exactly the right place
A special brush a half inch rake to paint the hair
Making it look easy with just perfect flair.
Then came a Fox Terrier whose name was Ed
Yellow Ochre,blue,white and deep cadmium red
Were the colours he used for his demonstration
Filling us all with ideas and inspiration
Next was a “Kooikerhondje “Dilys”was her name
A very rare breed was her claim to fame.
The right colour system is the trick
Lots of blending with white acrylic
Eyes,hair, tongues and nose
Also tips on how to compose
The finished work must look 3D
Careful planning is the key.
He certainly gave us lots to think about
Painting dog breeds yes certainly no doubt
Thanks Dave for brightening up our day
We really appreciate it anyway
I will definitely look at dogs in a new light
I’ll follow his example it will be just right.
