Dog With Pheasant


This painting is a family heirloom that was in a bit of a precarious situation: the linen that was used was a very heavy kind. This gave an advantage to the texture and the feel of the painting, a nice complement to a work of this theme, but unfortunately with heavy linen the paint film is more vulnerable to cracking; and as family heirloom’s tend to get up there in age, this painting had numerous areas in need of in-painting.
