"Peaches in the Sun" 12"x12" Oil on canvas by Zann Hemphill

"Peaches in the Sun" 12"x12" Oil on canvas

This painting was inspired by my own dog, Peaches, as part of a series of dogs at the beach. With the weather over the last month being so dazzlingly bright, the dog beaches have become a place where brown and orange fur lights up like fire against the grey west coast sand. Peaches was looking unusually regal that day, and I wanted to see if I could catch that amazing lighting on canvas.
