If you are interested, please comment or send me an email (fireoakstudio@gmail.com).

Here are some examples of previous paintings I’ve done of the same (or similar) size:

Dog Nouveau and Smoke Bowl

Dog Nouveau

One of my current commissions is a pet portrait of  two adorable Boston Terriers. And since my client is open to it, I’m going to share my steps in completing the painting.

Here is the sketch I will be working from

From this point, I will be transferring the drawing to the canvas. There are a few things I want to address while doing this, so it wont be exactly like this sketch. For example, I want to make sure I get the dogs’ likenesses down a little better. I also want to make the circle between the dogs a little bigger and add a border of sorts on the top and bottom of the painting.

Smoke Bowl

Here is an in progress shot of my latest bowl.

Another One Done

I finished up the letter C last night. I really wish there was a way to scan the gold paint so that it did it justice. These letters really shine in person.
