Time To Go Home
This digital oil painting, with a bit of impasto, was posted for a Sept 29, 2016, DAA class using Corel Painter’s new 2017, new software version. For my final assignment I wanted to create a story. Two Ann Lenabem (attribution) photos were combined and then painted to start . I had 3 photos of the Landseer which helped me get him into position. All materials were amalgamated into a composite. And finally, I got to paint the image I wanted.
Toby, the subject, belongs with Kerri and her husband who have a lively pack of Newfoundland Dogs —of which Toby is the leading male, a Landseer. I really enjoyed painting this big guy. He’s special.
I printed this one on heavy weight Satin paper. It is a favourite with my husband and so he had it matted and built a frame to display it. It was displayed for 3 months at the Village of Chase Chambers—an honour. And then, it was “Time to go home”.-30-
