The English Pointer -

English Pointer, Dog Portrait, Oil Painting, Daily Painting

10x10 oil on canvas panel.
I used a photograph I took a few weeks ago as reference for this sketch. I am not a fan of using photo reference for my work. It isn't an aesthetic issue, it's that after years working as an illustrator, it feels too much like work used to. I rarely do any preliminary drawing before painting but after a futile start on this picture I had to scrub the panel down and do a quick drawing and it helped quite a bit.
I also used Maroger Medium. I have known of this oil medium for years but only just purchased a tube. I'm unsure of how it should be used but plan on experimenting with it for awhile.

Love this pointer. You really captured his character. Had to laugh at your photo comment.
