Dogs also, of Course! Update on "Buddy" portrait

This is the finished portrait of "Buddy" - this is an 11x14" oil on canvas.  I added details such as highlights in his fur, softened the details around his eyes, and painted in his collar and tag.  I made one change at the request of my best critic, my husband, and lowered his back, which was too rounded. 
This is a very good likeness of this dog, especially his expression when he is intent on getting someone to play tennis with him!  Anyone interested in a portrait such as this, or something in watercolor or pencil, please visit my website at http://www.willafrayserstudio.com/, or email me at rider853@aol.com for more information!

Work in Progress - Oil portrait of "Buddy"

This oil painting of a lovely Rottweiler named "Buddy" was begun on 8.12.10.  This photo shows the block in stage for the background and main colors, as well as completion of his eyes.  The eyes are the most important part of all of my portrait work.  Until I am satisfied that the eyes reflect the soul of the animal, the rest of the painting will not be completed.  After the eyes are finished, the rest of the painting falls into place.
There will be more detail added to his coat, muzzel and collar, which I will show in the next update!
Follow along to see how "Buddy" progresses.  If you are interested in having a lovely portrait done of your dog, cat or horse for Christmas giving, Willa Frayser Studio will be accepting a few more until October 1st.  Please contact the artist at Rider853@aol.com!

Frayser Studio offers portraits in Sculpting

Equus 1 - Handpainted FINE ARTS Resin Sculpture designed by Willa Frayser Studio

Beginning 2010, Willa Frayser, Equine and Canine Artist, is offering portraits to be sculpted in clay, then molded and cast as a resin.  The Resin is then customized to the exact details of your horse!  The average size portrait is 7x8" (plus the solid walnut base) and starts at $725 (includes shipping).  Please view the attached photos and be sure to visit Willa Frayser Studio website http://www.willafrayserstudio.com/.

NOTE:  (Artist Resins are created from the artist's original sculpture and molded using this to create an original resin.  These are NOT mass produced - extreme care is taken to realistic detail, with correct conformation and proporations.  They are not commercially painted in any way, but handpainted by the Artist from the cleaning and priming of the original resin sculpture, handpainted in oils and varnished for protection and realism.)
