Bruce is our two year old Bedlington Terrier who loves to swim and this oil on linen canvas (Bella Arte) 30cm x 24cm originates from a photograph that I took with a Canon D20 24/70mm lens in the Autumn of 2017 in Poulter Country Park near Mansfield, UK I used Pan Pastels to free hand sketch the Terrier and then used acrylic undercoat to map out the basic colours of Bruces fur and then with the use of a selection of Rosemary Brushes finished him in Georgian Oils and then filled in the background with use of Georgian Oils using Naples Yellow,Raw Umber and Yellow Ochre and hints of Sap Green for the reeds. The painting took approximately 24 hours to complete over a 4 week period
