Pug Portrait

Another pug portrait! How was so thrilled when I was asked to make one ! And not just any pug. My latest pug portrait is of my pug Naku’s brother, handsome Rodney.

This means that when you make a portrait of a black dog you will run into the ame issue.

Once, my black pug Naku’ was sitting at the kitchen table in my previous house, and she was sitting right below a skylight. I took a photo and realized, that was the first not-staged photo that looked amazing. Read More
