This gorgeous guy was painted for a Patreon tutorial. In this tutorial, I teach how to paint black fur in pastels, and the whole project is explained step by step as I draw in pastels. I also created a YouTube mini tutorial if anyone is interested! Also, please check out this blog post I wrote about painting black fur. Feel free to inquire about art tutorials!

Little Rabbit and Eggs by Carole Rodrigue
Pastel 10 x 8
 
I painted this little guy for a Patreon tutorial. The whole tutorial is split into two parts and is fully narrated, as are all my videos. It also contains a lot of really time footage, especially where it counts! If you're not into taking painting lessons but are interested in watching my process, I have a quick speed painting video here where you can see this painting develop! Please be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you never miss a video!

China by Carole Rodrigue
Oil 10 x 8
 
Isn't this the sweetest looking little pup? China is a rescue whom I'm told has quite the character. She was commissioned as a gift from a return client for her mother and my client thought a flower collar would be a special touch. I agree! I had to get creative painting the collar as there was none in the reference. I purchased artificial flowers, watched a few YouTube videos on creating little flower crowns, and voila! I love how it makes China look all girly girl. I recorded the process for a speed painting video too. I hope you like it! Please be sure to subscribe and give it a thumbs up!

This adorable dog was painted as a private commission. I just love his sweet face and his eyes! He reminds me of my dog. His portrait is now in its new home in the US.

Biography

How I became a full-time artist . . .
 
I know it's stereotypical to say that I was an artist from the time I was a child, but I was.  I coloured everything in sight.  I stole my brother's colouring books, my cousin's colouring books, my friends, and just coloured everything. In school, arts and crafts was the only subject I enjoyed. I spent hours in the classroom doodling and drawing instead of paying attention.    
 
Like most artists, I just never grew out of loving to draw and work with colour, and creating something of beauty out of nothing.  My mother always recognized that I had a certain talent that needed to be nurtured. When I was a teen, I had become quite rebellious and was routinely getting into trouble. In order to keep me busy with something that interested me, my mother started bringing me to oil painting classes she took through a community program. Naturally, I instantly fell in love with oil painting.  This was back in the early 80's and I was 15 years old.  
 
Throughout adulthood, I kept painting once in a blue moon whenever the mood struck, but later on I became much more serious.  I started painting various subjects, from horses, to pets, to still life and landscapes.  In 2008, I entered my first art competition and won 2nd place for "Cafe Regular".  I've won more competitions since. Needless to [...]
