Robert Pattinson and Westie Dog, West Highland Terrier Painting

Here is the elusive Robert Pattinson that I painted with his favorite dog and our favorite dog, westies. We have that one thing in common. He has excellent taste; no?

This was painted all in one setting, alla prima, and the enjoyable part is that every brushstroke must have a purpose. It is done in a very fast paced style because then it is coming from the heart and not the mind so much...the art. This is why I like painting with oils....they are so versatile and they have an energy flowing from them which is from the large, loaded brushstrokes connected and slightly overlapped. Photos are cropped sections of a larger painting.

I would love to see Patty in a press conference with Robert. Two stars together.

Thanks for stopping by and visit again soon. Westies rule.

Oh my Lord, I love this! Although I am not a Twilight mom per se...I did read all the books with my teenage daughters, and I have taken them to many of the midnight movie premiers. My girls would love to know that he likes Westies!!! Bonnie Blue is happy about it, too.
