Orphee – wire-haired Dachshund

Orphee – wire-haired Dachshund

Let me introduce Orphee, the bad-tempered member of the family. As he gets old, I decided that it was time to draw his portrait.

Orphée - Oil on Canvas

As often in Dachshunds, he is a very independent dog outside, always on the lookout, he watches his little kingdom, I found that a portrait of his profile corresponded well.

I have deliberately kept his eyes in the shadow of his bushy eyebrows, because it is the image I have of him, and I sincerely did not want to add the little artificial light that added to the eye would accentuate the look. I think it gives him a mysterious and distant look.
