We have some early works in progress from Sagar. Sagar's style of painting is to paint the backgrounds first and then the figure.
This early work in progress of Jackson the Jack Russell Terrier by the water is a lovely backdrop to this handsome dog.
Hunter is having 3 different portraits done by his Dog-Ma from 3 different photos. This early work in progress by Sagar shows promise.
Vanna's early portrait looks a little confusing, but it is fascinating to me to see these works in progress and learn how a painting is constructed.
Jitters is looking good in this early version by Sagar. The red glow in the background sets off his pretty black and white fur.
Lo-Fi, an Australian Staffie, looks good against the green with his grey fur. His wide smile will be filled in later. Again, it is an early work in progress and I apologize for the glare on all these photos.
Sagar has almost finished his background for Collar, a Himalayan Cat. The photo did not include Collar's tail, so Sagar hid it behind a tree!
All of these are early parts of the process and will be finished soon. I apologize again for the low light quality of these photos, but as soon as I can get a good photo of the completed paintings, I will send them to you to make it easy to choose.
Each commission of a pet will get 3 paintings of their pet from 3 different artists. Each artist is paid fair trade wages whether their painting is chosen or not.
In the next few weeks, I will be publishing either finals or works in progress from the Nepali artists. If you would like to be first to see these paintings,
please follow the Nepal Art Dogs page on Facebook.
Or you can follow the NepalDog.typepad.com feed.
If you would like to have your dog (cat, horse, chicken, bunny, bearded dragon, etc.) immortalized on metal here in Nepal, now is the perfect time to order. I am here in November, 2018, to order more Danger Dogs and Cats.
This hand-painted art form is fast disappearing in Kathmandu, as it already has in most parts of the world. I pay fair trade wages, the artists get to paint again, pet lovers get a choice of three paintings for each commission, and I get to help Nepali artists make a living. Everybody is happy. Rescue dogs from America get to rescue artists from Nepal!
HOW TO ORDER
To order, please send me a photo of your pet. I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of 3 paintings and three artists will get work. Each painting is about one square foot and is on metal with synthetic enamel paint. These can be hung indoors or out, be framed or unframed.
While I am in Nepal, your pet will be featured on the Danger Dog Blog, as I stop into the artists' studios and document the works in progress.
Satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front. If you do not like one of the three, you pay nothing, and the 3 artists are paid in full in any case. Let me know what you want it to say and that's it!
Send your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.
Let's keep these artists painting.
American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.
