Final painting of Flo

This A4 oil painting of Welsh Border Collie Flo took a few days to complete. I really love how the light from the right side created this iridescent concoction on her white fur, whilst the parts of black fur had almost a cool undertone, sparking flecks of blue and silver. I added light hair strokes over the whole of her head, and heavier ones around the right eye to add detail and definition using Derwent Academy Pencils.
