Portrait painting of the powerful Rhodesian Ridgeback
Posted 9 months ago and submitted by Remy Francis | Share link: http://illo.cc/77178

Portrait painting in-progress of three adorable pets who have their home in a USA mid-west neighbourhood. As referred to by their owner, these are Rhodesian Ridgebacks, bred originally as lion-hunting dogs in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe. It is an awesome breed, but not for everyone as it needs a strong hand to handle them.

For a long wait to get an ideal gaze into the camera for me to make one portrait of a single pet, it was indeed a pleasant surprise to get a request to do all three in one considering how much I enjoy painting animals.

Now to turn to the fine-tuning of the painting to give that priceless moment and attention-to-detail to my piece. The most amazing part of my journey of completing any portrait is when I have to strategically place just a dot or two to give that live sheen before I sign off.

I would personally love to step forward and vouch for one of our own LinkedIn members: the very professional Remy Francis http://www.rembrandz.com who has done the cover for both of the science fiction/ fantasy novels I have written. Miss Francis is a solid professional with very competitive rates who is an author's dream to work with! She has a natural talent for extrapolation with regard to the grey areas of a descriptive brief and can visualize and put to art nearly any concept you can convey.... She is very punctual, and keeps you informed every step of the process.
