David and Max in progress


An in-progress look at the painting of David and Max

David and Max (WIP). 26x24, oil on linen. 2016

This is a portrait that I've been working on for the past three months. It's still in progress, but near enough to completion that I feel OK about showing it.

The painting is based on a photo taken by Smiley's Studio in Fort Worth, Texas, and used with permission. I changed the setting considerably.
