When I was commissioned to paint the portrait of this Jack-Russell terrier, I proposed a quick sketch of the dog on this director's chair. But my client wanted a very simple portrait of his Jack-Russell, sitting in front of a mirror, to show its front and back at the same time, because the dog's name is "heads or tails".
So I went along with my client's desire and then painted this scene for myself.
I was a great pleasure to paint this arm-chair, the wood grain, the different fabrics, the leather of the shoes and all the tiny details
The very dark background is a mixture of ink, watercolor and walnut stain. The walnut stain is terribly difficult to use, but it gives very interesting effects. Everything else is pure watercolor on Arches hot pressed paper and the size is 50x70cm.
Is it really necessary to have a special page to find my signature ?
This directorÕs chair, with my name printed on the back rest was my birthday gift. I use four chairs like this one for my exhibitions. Now when I have an Art show, I hang this painting over one of these arm-chairs. It creates an interesting decor.
