I was practicing last night to see how long it would take to do one of my computer portraits of a long haired dog. This weekend I will be doing my portraits on site in the Lab Rescue booth at the Houston dog show for donations. I can do a single short haired dog in about twenty munutes and I knew that long haired dogs took longer due to the extra hand painting and other detailed work required to extend the fur. This portrait of Freckles took an hour and a half to complete so tomorrow I may have to only do short haired dogs on site and save photos of the long haired dogs to work on later. In this portrait you can see the partial blue in Freckles eye.
