Another Christmas Portrait

Another Christmas Portrait
My apologies for not posting this last week.  It has been a strange January; enough said.  In any event, here's another pet portrait I did for a Christmas present.  This is Apollo, and he is one beautiful pup.  The reference photo posed a bit of a challenge, since Apollo is backlit in this one.  Most artists will tell you not to do a backlit portrait.  But I can't refuse a challenge.  And it turned out well, and, my client was very happy with the portrait. So all good.  Thanks for looking, and I would be honored to do a portrait for you.
