At Peace by Dave Froude

Title: At peace
Medium: Oil on 11 x 14 Wood Panel

I have been trying to expand my subject matter and try new things, and I have been having a great time with animals  so meet Taco, one of my Co-workers taking a break from play time, must of played pretty hard that day.  My goal for this painting was to keep it quite soft so kept brush strokes to a minimum by blending a lot with a dry brush to soften the edges as I painted, and omitted a fair amount of detail, as I was more interested in the mood then the likeness but it is a good likeness none the less. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out at first. found the back lighting a real challenge.

This painting is priced at $350.00
