Sarah commissioned Rossi as a Christams gift for her parents who had just recently and suddenly, lost their much loved Labrador, who was a huge part of the family.
The reference photo was quite small so it was difficult to see the detail, even when enlarged. Once the mock-up was created, I would lighten up the darker areas, especially around Rossi’s eyes and nose to enable me to see the shapes a little more clearly.
Rossi was framed with an Italian, pewter moulding, double matboards and standard picture glass.
