Blake & Apollo, 2021
30×24, pigment ink on canvas
This portrait is dedicated to the memory of Blake’s beautiful and special Great Dane, Apollo, who sadly passed away shortly after I took the original reference photographs for this painting. My primary painting tools for this were: Corel Painter 2021, MacBook Pro and the Wacom Intuos Pro Medium Creative Pen Tablet. I used Thick Paint brushes in Painter which provide luscious impasto brush strokes.
