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.
