Rebecca Friend is working with tutor Gayle Mason on the Pet Portrait Diploma Course and here are a couple of Rebeccas pieces from the first and second sets of artwork. We love the oil painting and you can read more about it below from Rebecca. Also visit and follow her instagram account @peachyartcreatures We are looking forward to seeing more from Rebecca in the coming weeks and months as she progresses through the course!
The dog in oils I am actually really pleased with. It took me a while but once it came together it really seemed to work. I definitely work in layers rather than alla prima with oils, at the moment anyway. I am still really rusty. This was done on primed MDf panel, I actually thought it came out well, sometimes painting on board doesn’t go right for me.Rebecca Friend
