Coco, 18x24", Patricia Bennett
A portrait of Coco.

Coco is named after the great Coco Chanel.

After taking over 200 photographs of Coco,  I chose my favorite four, and narrowed it down to 2.  I did a mock-up of each one and the client chose her favorite.  (I wanted to paint Coco in a niche, but open sky looked better.)

I began with a black and white painting.  This was to make sure that everything was in the right place, and to give three-dimensional structure.  I added color, more and more...  For inspiration, I listened to the movie about Coco Chanel.

 The entire process began mid-August.
