The Dog Roll

12x24 oil on board

Hello! Today's Dog Day Tuesdays post is a little late, its been a quite busy around here all good though. I wanted to change it up today and share Kinsey a commission I finished  a few days ago and will be delivering this week.

She is the cutest pup, her owner Danielle describes Kinsey as a 6 year old yellow mutt who loves to play with other dogs and loves rolling around in the grass. She enjoys long walks with her Daddy and gets along real well with her 2 feline sisters.

Danielle gave me 5 photos to choose from I then supplied her with some rough  (very rough) sketches of different compositions and color combination's for her to look at and approve. Danielle loves it when Kinsey "rolls"  ha I think its the cutest thing when Dukie rolls but boy he's always so stinky after! Anyway, I wanted to share the sketches with you...

What do you think?

Do you have a favorite color? A favorite composition?
I'd love to hear...

I may just use these for a future design or maybe use parts of them. That's the best part of having sketches - you can always refer back to them for new work.


  1. oh my gosh! Kinsey... this is amazing, Ivy... LOVE... to the moon.

  2. Ivy - this is amazing, love it and I have a feeling Kinsey's owner will love it too!

  3. Oh wow! I love them ALL!!! What a lucky client!!!
    You are so talented. Really making this little pup come to life for us!

  4. I really like how you set up the 3 orange verticals together...
    I need to visit you more-I just love your work and you're very inspiring.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts it truly means so much to me. I am happy to say Danielle loved the painting and I'm thrilled ♥
