Pet Portrait: Stella and Tess

Pet Portrait: Stella and Tess

This piece was a custom paper pet portrait for two adorable pups: Stella, a white maltese, and Tess, a standard poodle.

Sized at 8×11″ and framed in a black custom shadowbox, this piece was all about getting the detailings just right.

This illustration shows the actual front door and windowing of the owners’ house so not only did the pooches need to be just right, but the coloring and detailwork on the trim and house as well.

My favorite parts on this one?  I really like how the subtle color changes from the painted white papers came together in the end, and honestly I also think this is my best hydrangea bushes yet!
