A Dog And His Hiker
A Dog And His Hiker: A Tribute To My Siblings.
The reference photo was taken in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan on a trip with my brother in 2014. The UP has always been a favorite of our family and I could easily picture one of us hiking this area. The dog is represented by a dot and the hiker is nearly hidden. I also tried to make the main center of interest the "closest" object and the "furthest" object.
I realized after I started this that I had committed an artist no no. I placed the tree in the middle of the canvas. I spent the remainder of the painting trying to steer the eyes away from the middle.
