Meet Whitney, a model for one of my recent dog portraits. Whitney is a Dachshund Poodle mix who is about 12 years old. Whitney is a supper social dog around both people and dogs. She is curious about squirrels and gophers. I am guessing that is the Dachshund in her bloodlines. Whitney loves her squeaky toys and loves to follow her owner around or, for entertainment, have her owner chase her around the house. Whitney was adopted from the shelter when she was a year and a half.
Whitney’s owner saw a couple of my dog portraits on Facebook and contacted me to commission a drawing of her Dachshund Poodle mix breed dog.
Choosing The Background Color
To personalize my drawings, I always ask the owner of the pet to choose a favorite color or pick one that will accent their dog or cat. Sometimes I ask if they would like to color coordinate the background with the room they hope to hang the drawing in at their home. In this case, Whitney’s owner chose green hues to accent Whitney’s dark colors.
