“Tank” the sweet Pit Bull

 
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  🙂

Teaching through Time Lapse Videos

I’ve created many time Lapse videos of my painting process to show you what goes into creating one of my portraits. In this vdeo I’m painting a Yorkshire Terrier named Sophie and I take you through the process of how I paint. If you have any questions about my technique or anything else please feel free to contact me.

I love to see how these portraits come to life in a matter of minutes. I think its magical don’t you?

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for watching!

The Story!

 

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.

My standard sizes are an  8″x8″ acrylic on wood portrait is  $210.00, the 12″x12″ is $420.00 each, with each portraits you receive a set of 5 Bookmarks from my collection. If you would like to have larger paintings done with multiple pets please contact me at callmaggie@yahoo.com and we will work out the details. Thank You!

Paintings for Sale

Hi Everyone. I decided to place these three large original paintings for sale exclusively on my Blog. If you are interested in purchasing them send me at email at callmaggie@yahoo.com and I will send you more photos and all the details.

“Golden Luna” is 24″x 30″ it is painted on wood board. I created the background which resembles rough leather. This Overo Paint horse has touches of Gold acrylic paint highlighting pieces of his mane and throughout the painting. I restored this old antique frame by filling in the cracks and dry brushing the details with Gold  acrylics. This photo does not do it justice. This painting is rich in color, texture and feel.

“Valentino”  is 24″ x 48″. It is a very tall  and skinny painting, perfect for a narrow wall. He is a sweet colt that will make you fall in love with him as you stare into his eyes. The negative space above this relaxed thoroughbred will capture your attention and you will draw you to him as you will want to sit with him for a while.


“Love that Pig” is 30″ square. A dynamic background sets off this sweet pink pig that you are sure to love.  There are many textures throughout this very large painting complimenting that sweet stare and big smile of this very fine Pig.

Hope you enjoy them be sure to leave a comment would love to hear what you think 🙂
