Suki in Harvard Yard

Suki is an American Eskimo doggie. This portrait shows Suki in one of his favorite environments: Harvard Yard, where he often goes for walks. Since I live in Cambridge, I was able to meet Suki in person for this portrait - which was such a treat! Suki is a beautiful doggie and it was so great to do his portrait. His fur is very full, and very creamy white. I used many different shades of cream for his fur in the portrait. I tried to work the depth and texture using shadows. I was also able to take some detailed photographs inside of Harvard Yard to get the colors and the whole mood just right.
