The Guardian-Great Pyrenees
Oil on 6x6 canvas panel.
This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Mary was the gracious hostess. Thanks for the great reference photos.
Mary explained this is a Great Pyrenees that was bred to guard stock for shepherds. A very noble looking dog!
I started out with the intent of 100% painting knife. But I became impatient and resorted to the loaded brush about halfway through.
I hope ya like it! Happy Easter!!
John 20:13 They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”“They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” 14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
