This is my dog Trout. A 1 year old English Setter. I posted it earlier in the pet section but thought you might like to see it.
I did this a a detail color study out of curiosity. I learn a great deal. #1 like I won't be doing a big full portrait.
I used Mark color starved palette to great success. I use Naples yellow a lot and did so here. I did this today in 5 hours of actual work mixing and painting with a lot of looking and dog walking in-between. I pretty much layered the paint in the face not mixing too much. The ear and the body were feathers as appropriate for the setter's feathery appearance.
