Pet Painting — ‘Finn’

‘Finn’ — Pet Painting by Valerie Rawlings

Here is my completed pet painting of Finn — the handsome winner of our pet photo contest. The German Shepherd’s wonderful smile inspired me to paint his fun and playful side.

At first I was hesitant about using these wild orange and cobalt blue colors; but as the portrait image evolved, Finn assured me that he was loving it. I especially like the contrast between the sedate background and the vibrant colors of his coat.

This afternoon I’m sending the completed pet painting off to Christine in Indiana. I hope she enjoys my take on her beautiful dog!!
