Pet Portrait Series: Back-lit Dog

Man’s best friend is also a painter’s best friend, especially in this gorgeous back-lit setting! Work from the ground up starting with a spectacular reference photo, breaking down the various planes of your subject. Jared will then help you navigate the difficult “blowing” effect, as well as using smart edge placement to nail that shaggy look dogs are best known for. Finally, achieve balance between warm and cool colors to drench your subject in a majestic glow. ( 3+ hours)

Jared Brady

Jared Brady is a representational artist working mainly in oils. He continues to explore new visual concepts and subject matter and is excited by the countless possibilities of art. “There is beauty everywhere I look. The same visual concepts that excite me in a grand vista can also be found in a simple still life.”
A current theme Jared is exploring is forest landscapes.  “Something about the forest has always transfixed me. The abstraction, flow, and complexity has always drawn me to it. I find that when a subject seems too difficult or out of reach, I gain so much when I push myself to take it on.”
