Portraits, whether of animals or people are often done in a standard, three quarter view compositions, making them fairly predictable.
I like portraits to be a little different, so this perspective appealed to me. This is the start of an bulldog portrait done in acrylic. Apart from my initial reservations about acrylics, I am warming to them but they still give me fits a lot of the time with their quick drying. Its both a blessing and a curse, even when using extender.
I'll work on the portrait over the next few days between other pieces and put up the final shot later this week. Oh, its on an 8 x 10 panel.
