Mother’s Day

May 12, 2014

Well he finally got his hands in paint and by the looks of it, he liked it.  First Mother’s Day gift and you can bet it’s skipping the fridge and going right to my studio wall.

Nick and Elliot also started a book for me.  Instead of cards for birthdays, Mother’s Day, etc. they’ll add to the book…love!

I even still have a few canvas prints available for purchase. These were a very limited edition, so grab them fast!

If you like my Facebook Page you’ve seen some of the progression of this portrait.  I’m soooo lovin’ painting this sweet beagle face!  I still need to add the finishing touches, but you won’t see those until Diana does.  The under-painting is acrylic, then I apply thin oil washes until I build up a nice intensity in the paint.  After each wash dries, I carefully subtract the paint with erasers until I have built up a nice contrast.  The final step will be to top it off with some oil paint in a more traditional manner to make things like the whites of her twinkly eyes “pop.”

Vayda’s Pet Shop is still undergoing a much needed overhaul.  Until then, email me if you’d like to inquire about your own custom pet portrait.

Another beautiful church to paint!  This one is located on Telfair Square.  Hand painted and signed prints now available!

I hate to be one of those people advertising Christmas before Halloween has run its course, but my painting schedule does fill fast!  Be sure to email heather@flyoungstudio.com if you’d like to get on the list.

***Come the start of 2014, I’ll be raising my fee for Pet Portraits considerably.  They are truly a labor of love, but they take many layers of oil paint and lots of hours of work to complete.  Anyone that gets on the list before December 31st, 2013 will get the old rate of $250 for an 8×10″.
