Coco Bean

A bread and butter work Painting; I was commissioned to do a painting of someones dog for a Christmas present, unfortunately I was not able to meet the dog for this painting so it was a bit harder to connect with the subject. I didn't get to know the personality or take my own photos, so hopefully I captured the essence of the dog through the colours and such.
Despite all this I think it came out well and will hopefully be a nice surprise for the receiver on Christmas morning.
Acrylic on a 10 x 10 canvas.
