This expression of this spaniel was actually inspired from a warm night in a dog park. The sun was pretty much down and it was dark. But what was interesting was that even though it was dark, you can hear and feel the energy of the dogs running by you and playing. By chance, a car headlight danced through the trees catching just enough of a springer spaniel’s dash across the grass. I loved how that the small amount of light was able to capture such emotion. I started painting this image from memory of that split second in the park and found myself layering over from what was a dark image to that isolated moment. Basically taking him out of the environment and simplifying around him to focus on that captured energy.
