Next to Afghan Hounds, Yorkies are one of my favorite breeds of dogs. My friend Sue owns several Yorkies and I used one of her dogs as the inspiration for this painting. The dog I chose to use for the painting had the most beautiful eyes and the sweetest face. The weekend before I presented her with the painting her dog suddenly become very ill and died in her arms before the Vet arrived at her house. I felt so sad about the loss of her favorite dog but she was happy to receive the painting as a remembrance of him.
I had requests to show my work in progress. Here's the working sketch and the preliminary painting on toned Canson paper.
