Mending the Nets

The activity and bright colors at a fishing village are very inspiring to a painter. I used this reference photo in my studio to capture the activity and color of this fisherman repairing his bright yellow nets.

When I finished the Dalmatian I must have been in an animal mood so I decided to paint a Bulldog. No spots on this guy but lots of wrinkles and pigmentation under his chin. Again, I was pleased with how he turned out.

I had a friend who wanted a painting of a dalmation so I jumped at the chance. I've painted that breed before and doing another one was great fun. I think he turned out very handsome.
