Day 10 - Niles

"Niles"  6x8 oil
by Renee Brennan

Day 10 - of the 30/30 Challenge (yes I skipped 9 in case anyone is counting).

This is my friends dog Niles who we used to go on dog walks with.  
He sadly is no longer with us and funny thing when I just mentioned his owner "Ms Betsy",  my 2 dogs jumped up and were ready to go on a walk!
he was a sweet boy.

before ...I kind of wanted to keep the warmer tone background initially
because of his cool colored fir.  Then I decided  purple would be fun...but then his brown eyes didn't look so brown.  So on the final (top pic)  I added a bit more warmth to the brown in his eyes...think I got it!

I like the richness of the purple background you gave this painting. Looks great with the dog...
