Meet Jake, the very gentle and sweet grehound with the awesome ears who I got to paint over the last two weeks.
Jakes human mumma contacted me a while back to have his portrait done, and I'm so glad she did because he was so much fun to paint. She described him as having a playful spirit with a sense of humour. Apparently he can be a little demanding but also very loving and gentle.
I absolutely loved painting him, and also had the pleasure of meeting Jake in person over the weekend. His mumma drove him all the way to Phillip Island from Alphington to pick up the portrait in person, which is awesome because it isn't often that I get to meet the subjects of my pet portraits in real life.
A huge thank you to Merryn for commissioning the portrait!
What do you think? Did I get the ears right?
