Painterly Boxer Dog Portrait Commission

Good intentions.
Painterly Boxer Dog Portrait
Work in Progress

There have been a few times when I wished I had stopped at the point in the pastel painting above. This boxer portrait has life in the eyes which is most important in a portrait. The portrait is at a painterly stage showing life and energy of the dog as well as the artist. Instead of stopping I continued on to end with a portrait that appeared more realistic (shown below). My customer loved the finished portrait, but I prefer the painterly stage above.
