So, Winston is a bloodhound rescued by my longtime friend, Bill Brehl who lives near Ottawa. He's a great guy and a rescuer of bloodhounds along with his wife, Andrea Brehl. They have 3 bloodhounds and assorted other pets. Bill took a picture of one of his bloodhounds, Winston, as he was staring out the window during a rainstorm. I was inspired by Bill's photo to do this acrylic painting of Winston. It was great fun to do. I've wanted to use the 'chiaroscuro' technique for some time and this painting demonstrates that (in my mind). It's 16X20 inches. It lives with Bill and Andrea.
