I started this as a plein air painting and while I was there this lady came by walking her dog. I loved the pattern on the dog's coat and asked her if I could take pictures. They were added later at my studio. I did not capture either one of them as far as a good likeness, but the dog's coat against the red harness was what attracted me to them. I am looking at it here and am considering changing her sweatshirt to a red as well.
10 x 20 oil on canvas panel.
Here it is with the red sweatshirt. I also made a few minor changes, like muted the background around the girl to bring her out more
I again made adjustments. hopefully this is the end.
