Ernie the Shipoo
Ernie is a little Shi Poo dog (Shih Tzu/Poodle) who lived with my Auntie until she sadly passed late 2018. He is a very sweet, affectionate dog with the softest fur. He is now happily living with a new mum and no doubt is extra spoilt!
MEDIUM: Acrylics on board
See how Ernie's portrait came together
I had a spare 'ASHGATE' frame which I thought would be perfect for this portrait and ensured the colours of the background complimented both Ernie's tones and the frame. It really does suit such the subject and the simplistic background keeps all the focus on Ernie himself.
