Border Collie home

"Border Collie Home" 

This was a commission by Bill. Acyclic on framed Canvas. This is a photo I took from my camera phone.  Once it is framed I will get a better picture of it.  My favorite part of this painting is the shadows.  That being said it was also the most difficult part.   Creating a sense of three dimension with most of the light direction coming from the top and front was daunting.   I still needed to give it strong light from the front give it a balance of light.  If I used too much shadows it would have been too dark and look like a big dark spot in the middle of the painting.  This way I could orchestrate focal points to let eye have pleasure of movement and dance in a static object. I hope you all enjoy.
