Oil painting of Hector the family dog. Oil on Canvas. It would be quite understandable if Hector’s idea of activity did not involve posing for an oil painting, but to give full credit to him, he did
cooperate. Painting animals is an extremely challenging task but this one did end up translating into an actual oil painting. The idea was to focus on the face and the expression and to not fuss about over the fur. The lush brown fur was balanced by the bright green mattress colors. The background of black and blue color was used to bring out the skin color into focus. The expression of the eyes was either a detached expression of amusement over the artist looking back and forth at the painting and the dog combined with sleepiness.

Hector was amongst the first oil paintings of animals done by the artist and it certainly gave
confidence to venture into this style more in the future. Since hector many animal oil paintings have been painted by the artist including horses, tigers, wolves, polar bears and many more which you can find on this website.
