How to Paint a Dog Portrait – Helping Animal Shelters

December 22, 20161 Comment

In collaboration with San Diego Humane Society and Arts for Barks, I painted a portrait of an overlooked dog as an incentive for people to adopt it. The new parents get to keep the painting. In this video I’ll take you through my experience at the shelter and then I’ll let you watch over my shoulder as I do the painting.

Update: The dog I painted was adopted shortly after I made this and is loving her new family. However, there are many other pets out there that need a new home. If you’re considering getting a furry friend, check out your local shelter. There are a ton of great animals out there waiting for a family.

    You are a wonderful person and an inspiration. I have 4 dogs and have been learning to draw on and off for many years. I really enjoy your teaching videos and text. Thank you for trying to help these deserving canine friends and thank you for helping us humans.
