oil on canvas panel 10x8 inches
private collection Brighton Colorado
Riley the smiling Corgi belongs to my brother and his family. In the photo reference Riley is enjoying the desert with its red dirt. It must have been a cloudy day because there was no division of light and shadow, and yet a little reflection of the sky shone in Riley's eyes. I included most of his body to get that Corgy look; big ears and short little legs. I toned the canvas with thalo red rose and indian yellow which gave it a glow I'm really happy with. This is a late Christmas present. Merry Christmas, Bro! Hope you like it!
