This perfect little “Yorkshire Terrier” Portrait represents a very rambunctious puppy. We had to wait and play with this wonderful little puppy for about an hour before tiring. She was 11 months old at the time of this portrait and weighted not even three pounds. She stood 10 3/4″ tall. The original pastel painting was her exact height! Twinkle Star was a delight to paint!
Once Twinkle Star started to get tired she said so straight and stared at me. I took out my pad to draw this wonderful little “Yorkshire Terrier Portrait”. Much to my delight she remained still that allowed me to compose a sketch for the painting.
This Yorkie was so adorable and since our digital process is such wonderful technology I combined it with the traditional paintings methods to create this new image of the “Yorkshire Terrier Portrait. I then hand-painted the new image with pastels and acrylic paint, framed and glassed the new art. The brown frame is very wide and gives the impression of the small size of the this little love. A beautiful piece for someone who has a Yorkie that resembles this one.
Loving animals is a prerequisite to creating portraits. We love our pets!
