Best Buddy

Mr. Bones, as his blog (here) shows is very special. I have been working on his portrait for a while now, trying to figure out how to paint his black shiny coat and those soulful eyes. I did a light underpainting with different colors -peacock green and  ultramarine blue on his body and touches of pumpkin orange on his face before using black grape. I am very happy with the final piece and I hope Mr. Bone's best buddy will also think so because his birthday is very special to me too :).

Its awesome! The eyes look alive, especially the left eye. The small size in the Blog does not do justice to the painting. The difference when viewed in full size is amazing!I'm sure Arun will consider this his best birthday gift!

Hooray for Bones! His best friend will love this (as does his other best friend/mom)! Beautiful work!
