Two Cute-Chihuahuas

 Close ups

Oil on 5x7 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Kathy was the gracious host this week and provided a bunch of great photos!

These two chihuahuas are too cute....and I believe they know it!

This time I toned the support with a thinned mixture of acrylic purple ( aliz crimson + ult blue) as a complement to the subject. Much of it remains visible, especially in the upper right.
This piece runs the range between super thin to very heavy paint in select places.

C&C welcome. Thanks for checking me out and taking the time to leave a comment!

Matthew 27:23      And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.


  1. The playful choice of a violet background really enhanced these two. Charming !

  2. They are very cute! I like the variation on the texture. Great little painting Dean!

  3. Absolutely beautiful piece, Dean! I think the background is phenomenal and it almost looks like a pink dust sitting on top of it, a really neat effect!

  4. Cute indeed!Love the colors here,Dean.

  5. You are excellent for making me feel..." sweet is that!" So sensitive and emotional.
    Another lovely painting Dean

  6. Beautiful colors, Dean....they're adorable!

  7. A cozy comforting painting. Those two dogs look so contented. I think the the purple colors you worked into the painting contributed to this aura of happiness!
