Collie dogs portrait painting in commission

'Collies'- portrait, 50x60 cm, oil painting (sold/commission)

This dog portrait of collies is made in oil, size 60×50 cm in commission.
When portraiting mutliple animals I search for a composition where both animals are somehow connected with eachother. For example, if each look into another direction, they look distant to eachother, not bonded. The final design is chosen if both characters radiate best. With ‘single’ portraits there is a total different approach than with two or more animals. Both character and dynamics between the animals has to be right. These two collies are very close, showing off their gorgious collars. That’s why I put them somewhat higher up on the panel. With enough room for their pretty coats.

    Well done Marjolein! Recommended – lots of inspiration here and much better than some other books on this subject. Doesn’t waste too many pages telling you what equipment you need, which by the time you get this far should be acquired knowledge anyway. I tend to prefer art books featuring a variety of different artists’ work but I was agreeably surprised by the standard of Marjolein’s work. She’s a good artist and I like the book.Possibly a feline leaning, though many different animals too. Happy to have it on my shelf.

    A beautiful coffee-table book and an inspiring and highly-skilled tutorial for both beginners and practising artists alike.
    I bought this book as a gift. Upon its arrival, the book looked do splendid that I couldn’t resist taking a quick look at it. Over an hour later (and an appointment almost missed as a result) I was forced to put it down. It is totally entrancing!
    Large in format, full of beautiful colour plates, packed full of practical tips (several of a safety nature I was totally unaware of) and with the sort of careful instruction that only the combination of a qualified teacher and practising artist could provide.
    The examples furnished by the artist herself, from her own repertoire, are stunning and reason enough to purchase this book – even if you don’t intend to embark on producing your own masterpieces.
    However, having now read the whole book (I will have to buy another for my friend!) even I am inspired to have a go and intend to start by attempting to sketch my granddaughter’s kitten.
    I wholeheartedly recommend this book and feel convinced that it will not disappoint.
