New Pug Painting - The Pug Kiss - A69

The Pug Kiss
Acrylic on wood
8 x 10

Hi everyone! I am so excited to show you my latest pug painting. I call it The Pug Kiss.
I had so much fun painting it and I remembered to stop along the way and take some pictures to show you how I created it.


The first thing I do is sketch my painting on a piece of 8 x 10 hemlock wood.


Then I start filling in the fur and shading. You can see I have started on the black pug here.

I left the pink tongue blank for now and moved onto the fawn pug.




He is coming along. Just the nose, tongue, background and fine lines to go.

And here they are just before the final touches.

I love how this painting turned out. I cannot believe this is my 69th pug painting. :)

It is available on all of my products where you can choose the design. I hope you enjoyed this little snapshot into my painting process.

Have a wonderful day everyone!
