Nova the black German Shepherd


Meet Nova!

Nova was such a fun girl to work on- I love painting black dogs because it's a chance to reflect all different subtle colours from the environment off their fur. 🐺

This surprise gift was ordered for Nova's owner by her boyfriend! When I asked if there was any special occasion, he said "I just want to have it ready for when she's having a bad day." 😭 If that's not the most thoughtful surprise gift, then I don't know what is!

This painting is 11 x 14” in size, and was created using Photoshop and a Wacom Intuos tablet.


Here is the original sketch or “line art” where the image started.
