Psychedelic Rainbow Rottweiler Pet Portrait Painting

Completed on July 16, 2020, this pet portrait painting is of a female Rottweiler mixed breed dog named Shadow in bright rainbow colors.  This portrait was created with acrylic paints on an 11″ x 14″ stretched canvas.  Both the background and the dog have bright psychedelic rainbow colors, making this a vibrant and dynamic portrait. This is the first of two portraits for the same owner. A larger version of this painting can be seen in my portfolio here – Colorful Pet Portrait – Shadow the Rottweiler.

 

Please see the closeup views of the portrait above.  You can see the brush strokes and details, as well as the colors used.  Shadow is a black and tan dog with rottweiler markings, which i portrayed in a rainbow style.  The black areas of her fur were created with mostly darker cool colors, such as purple, violet, blues and greens, with splashes of magenta and dark yellows.  The tan areas of her fur are portrayed with brighter warm colors, such as red, orange, yellow, and some magenta and hot pink.  The background is a style I like to call “rainbow confetti”. It starts with a tie-dye inspired abstract blocking of colors, with adjacent colors overlaid in large square shaped brush strokes.

i really like using this rainbow art style.  My more recent pet portrait paintings have been more psychedelic than the older ones.  I feel more comfortable and confident with this style, and more assured that people will like it.  When I first started doing pet portraits, I wanted to use a lot of color, but also did not want to go overboard, in case the owners did not like it.  However I have found people really respond to this colorful style and want something different with their pet portraits.

If you enjoy my art style, and would like a colorful pet portrait of your own, please contact me. Visit my Pet Portraits Commission page to get more information on prices, sizes, materials, and more.  I would be happy to paint your pet in my psychedelic rainbow style!

This painting is available in my online Gallery Art Store as an art print, canvas print, tote bag, cell phone case, throw pillow, fleece blanket, beach towel, coffee mug, and much more!

Colorful Rottweiler Dog Available as Art Print

My newest painting, completed April 26, 2019, is titled “Gentle Guardian – Colorful Rottweiler“.  It can be seen in my Colorful Dog Paintings gallery.  This painting was created with acrylic paints on an 11″ x 14″ wood panel.  The brand of paints I use is Liquitex and Winsor & Newton.  The wood panel had been primed with gesso before painting, and the finished painting is sealed with clear gloss acrylic varnish to protect it.  This is another in my series of colorful dog portraits, and it is available in my online stores as an art print, home decor, gifts, accessories and much more.  Please read the article below to see which products are in each of my stores.

Here you can see a closeup view of this painting.  It features a portrait of a Rottweiler dog in bright  vibrant rainbow colors.  I use the natural colors and patterns in the fur as a guide when I choose my colors.  The tan areas of this dog are painted with yellow and orange, with red and magenta in the shaded areas.  The black areas are painted with blue, purple, and green, with dark purple used as a shade color.  No black was used in the creation of this painting.

The Rottweiler is a powerful working breed descended from ancient Roman mastiffs. The breed was established in Germany, where they were used to herd livestock and pull carts of meat to market.  They have a nickname of “butcher’s dog” for this reason.  The breed was named after Rottweil, a town in southern Germany.  They are calm and confident, and wary of strangers. Among their own family they are known to be playful, even silly, and are wonderful companions.
