Our Sweet Dog Callie

Today I finished a painting of our dog, Callie.  I changed things up a bit and painted the entire thing in Photoshop CS5 using the new mixer brush tools.  I have to admit that I have been putting this off-using the mixer brush tools, that is.  But I recently received a new DVD from Fay Sirkis where she explains the use of these tools so well, I took the plunge and this is the result. 

Anyway, I hope you enjoy.



  1. Beautiful beautiful portrait Jane and I am in awe of your ability to capture the essence of your sweet dog's personality - you should be entering dog portrait competitions~!!!

  2. Hi Jane,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love the painting of Callie. You did an amazing job with the PS brushes! What a cute puppy!!!

  3. Is Callie a Pomeranian? I have one that I adore, Copper is his name.

  4. Callie is a Corgi mix with some Pom and maybe some Chihuahua. She was a rescue, so her pedigree is a bit of a mystery. Love her!
