There is a new drawing in my Dog Paintings gallery It is a French Bulldog titled “Daydreamer”, drawn with vibrant rainbow colors! This is the first of a series of colorful pet portraits that I will be drawing as original artwork. Meaning, these are not commissions, and both the original drawing and prints from the drawings can be purchased. These portraits will be mostly of dogs and cats, although I may draw other pet animals as well. I will be starting with small breed dogs first.
Reference photo from Pixabay. The reference photo from which this painting was created was of a fawn colored French bulldog. The tan colored areas of the dog have been painted with bright warm colors (red, range and yellow), and the black areas and shadows were painted with cool colors (blue and purple). The dark colored background makes the subject pop off the paper.
The French Bulldog is a small breed of dog developed in France in the 1800s. They were a result of the cross between bulldogs and ratting terriers from France and Britain. They are fairly quiet dogs, and do not bark much. They do not require a lot of exercise, and are very friendly and affectionate.
This adorable French Bulldog is drawn with vibrant colors using pastel pencils on Clairefontaine pastelmat. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple colors create a rich and bold pet portrait. The photograph that I used as a reference for this drawing can be found on Pixabay. I thought this photo of a sweet Frenchie laying down was the perfect reference for my portrait. The wistful look in his eyes and the adorable pose made the perfect composition for the drawing. I like to use photographs that are a little out of the ordinary for my drawings.
