I’ve got a Secret, Have You Heard?

original animal pet art
Contemporary animal art two sheep by laurierohner.com

Contemporary animal portrait two sheep is an original art work by Laurie Rohner for Between The Weeds.

A contemporary animal portrait of two sheep. I like sheep and these two sheep are from a photo taken of a friends animals on their farm. I couldn’t get to close because just off to the side was their ever watchful llama. Maybe that was the secret?

What I like is the one sheep nozzles up against the others cheek pushing the folds up. The nose is hidden slightly by the excess of skin. Neither one seems to mind much like two friends sharing a bit of gossip.

Would you like a pet portrait oil on canvas original art painted just for you?

Original oil painting by Laurie Rohner
Original custom pet portrait oil painting on canvas by Laurie Rohner

Let’s be honest we are mad about our pets. Whether they have fur, hair, feathers, scales or a shell they are very dear to us. I know from my own experiences my dogs have been very important in my life. They have been companions, heroes, warriors, angels, friends, and partners in this journey of life. My only wish is they could be with us longer, still wonder why they live short lives. I am convinced every animal stays connected to us and when we finally take the last breath not only are the people we connect with but the animals too.

I have gotten a bit tired painting flowers and lately had a wonderful experience to paint my realtors recently passed dog, Molly. For whatever the reason I had I felt a tug to paint something new. Painting a loved animal seemed to be the perfect answer. After getting a photo or three from Ellen, my fabulous new realtor, and pulling out a canvas I started to go to work.

This is the image of Molly
This is the image of Molly

Is this not the sweetest face? Her eyes were icy blue, very different and hard to paint without losing the emotional essence of the dog. There were also two other photos of her in the fields and grass. I liked the way she laid here and used this position for the painting but added a painterly ground of grass for her to lie on. I also saw her as blues and purples since I hate black in paintings. I mapped her out and started to apply the base shades of color.

Molly almost completed.
Molly almost completed.

I liked the way she was coming along but now comes the detailing and highlighting. She needs to be polished and Molly’s emotions needs to shine through.
