This artist is a true original :)
I've done my fair share of commissioned dog portraits. They are straightforward and detailed pastels. But I really love the expressive pet portraits of artists like Carrie Jacobson.
My sister-in-law is on the board of directors for the SPCA of Northern Nevada (Reno's only no-kill animal shelter.) I thought it would be great to use my student's artwork towards a fundraising purpose or at the very least, compose prints of their art into a poster to give to the shelter. So my 4th-6th graders used a very cute terrier-mix, Sebastian (one of the shelter's adoptable dogs), as their model. They were encouraged to use analogous colors (colors that sit next to each other on the color wheel) to paint their pooch. We talked about trying to emulate Jacobson's expressive brush strokes. I think each painting has great personality. Well done all of you!
