A commissioned painting of a dog called “Buyan”.

For this one I combined several photographed views into one. I usually really try to avoid working from photos, but with animals there is really no other way. I’ve added some sketches I did.
It’s a bit inspired by Yamaguchi Kayo’s paintings I saw in Japan. Hm, should make a post about him.
