Vibrant Rainbow Pug Dog Portrait

Share This

My newest painting, titled Comic Relief – Colorful Pug Dog,  was completed on December 2, 2018.  This is the 12th painting in the Colorful Dog Portraits series.  This painting was created with acrylic paints on board, and measures 11″ wide by 14″ tall.  This is a portrait of a pug created with vibrant  rainbow colors.

The original painting is for sale. If you are interested please Contact Me.

For this portrait, I really wanted it to be more rainbow and impressionistic than my previous paintings.  While I generally stuck with a warm/cool color theme, I also used a lot more complementary colors next to each other.

The tan areas are generally warm colors like yellow and orange, but there is some blue and green in there as well.  The black areas like the muzzle and ears are generally cool colors like blue, but there is a lot of magenta, purple, green and even orange and yellow.  The background is a mix of light blue and purple.  I feel like this contrasts well with the oranges and yellows, while also complementing the blues and purples in the dog, which makes the dog pop.

My goal is to create more interest and have fewer areas where there are blocks of a single color.  I also used fewer mixed colors, opting for more pure colors instead.  It is really hard to tell in this scan, but the areas that appear to be black are actually a really dark purple.  This creates a richer black than the black straight from the tube.
