Millie and Bonnie

I had the opportunity recently to photograph these two gorgeous Daschunds for a commission. Unusually, the one who is really good with visitors was quite shy of me and the one that is usually shy was all over me. Maybe one reacted to the camera more than the other. However, with the owners help, I managed to get lots of shots to work from and put together this piece. Bonnie, the one on the right, is actually hiding behind the owner’s leg in the photograph but I put her behind Millie to create a more harmonious image with the two dogs interacting. I’ve used the fibreglass brush on 11″ x 14″ black scratchboard
