JAKE


Meet Jake! An endearing Weinmariner with a sweet disposition, that is loveable, playful and a puppy full of love!  I've also painted him on the beach with his owner Guy, which you can view at my website. This was just a fun day of photographing him in the back yard and I really loved the expression captured here. He was playing catch and was in a stance to run and catch.  I love cropping to really draw you into the eyes and and added a warm glow surrounding him. I also removed the tags and wall border in the background prior to painting.  I painted mostly using acrylics and a messy brush for the backround. His eyes give you a peek into his gentle soul. Please feel free to leave your comments.

Nice job! You can almost feel the seal skin-like texture of his fur. Great job on Jake's eyes too. Would it be correct to call you a Corel Master or a Corel Mistress?
