Here is my Cousin Daniel’s dog “Tank” that I painted for him for his Birthday!
This is an 11″ x 14″ matted & framed Pen & Ink with Acrylics on Animation Cell.
I love doing these animation cell paintings. The materials are fun to use, and I’m always delighted by the results.
I’ve always loved drawing with the pen & ink, you can achieve some beautiful lines with it. The only disadvantage of this technique is that you have to paint backwards so you have to think carefully what you want to see first. Also, its very important that each layer be completely dry or some of the paint will peel off. Its tricky, but once you understand how each of the materials work together its so fun.
You can see the different steps to creating one of these pieces below.
Hope you try it out. If you have any questions please let me know I would love to help 🙂

Here is a Portrait of Lucy a very sweet Great Dane that I had the honor of painting. My client told me wonderful stories about her beloved Lucy and that is how I was able to capture her sweet nature. Lucy recently passed and it is such a comfort to my client to have her beautiful face smiling back at her.
It is in the stories you tell me about your furry kids that ignite my imagination to paint your pet how you see them. I’ll draw 3 sketches for you and then you get to decide which one is the one you love the most, then I begin the painting.
