Quincy and his cobalt blues

"Quincy the Pitbull"
See all Proofs
Yesterday I was listening to Pandora's box ... a very cool web radio type service that serves up music based on your likes. They kept playing great blues tracks I had never heard before. Anyway ... I was working on Quincy and in a very good creative place. This was a fun project as the client wanted primary colors and lately I have been thinking about, hmmm, more like hungering for cobalt blue & yellow. These are pure hues that I very seldom take out of my crayon box. I usually like to dirty up my colors with off shades and warm dark under tones. With that said after the holiday rush I kept thinking about pure basic childhood colors for some reason and then along came Quincy to fit that bill. The photo below is his actual house. I mocked up his work on the wall at the back. He has a kitty buddy I guess. Maybe if I am lucky the kitty will be next.

Gorgeous. Pitbulls really do have the most expressive eyes and you capture them perfectly.

I'm glad you showed Quincy's full portrait. I loved his eyes so I was anxious to see his portrait! The colors are perfect! Great job!
