Buddy - Springer Spaniel
This portrait was created from a mock up of 3 photos to create the composition. It was decided to superimpose a different head onto the body in this image as the original photo looked anatomically incorrect due to the photo being taken from above and a little too close - however the cut and paste images although it appears rather untidy in the reference photo, allowed me to create a highly effective painting and gave the Commissionee a good idea of how the finished piece would look.
MEDIUM: Acrylics on board
