Rex...the dog

Our friends recently purchased a home, so for a house warming gift I painted them a portrait of their dog, Rex. Rex is the coolest little dog ever, and is also a good friend of our family, so we felt he deserved a place of honor in their new home.

It had also been a while since I painted with oils on canvas, so this was also an opportunity to touch my brushes. I took a new approach, having never approached a dark primed canvas, I primed this canvas with  black acrylic paint. This worked really nicely and I'm not sure why I never have done it before. I look forward to the next painting opportunity.
