This is an oil painting of two pet dogs belonging to Drea and Peter. The black Giant Schnauzer is Drogo and the Leonberger is Ursa. Both huge dogs on a huge canvas and a very enjoyable painting experience for myself and hopefully an equally enjoyable experience for the owners upon receipt of this painting of their beloved pets completed recently in September 2021. The oil painting is on a 70cm x 50cm linen canvas and took 20 hours to complete. The Giant Schnauzer is a breed of dog developed in the 17th century in Germany. It is the largest of the three breeds of Schnauzer?the other two breeds being the Standard Schnauzer and the Miniature Schnauzer. Originally bred to assist on farms by driving livestock to market and guarding the farmer's property, the breed eventually moved into the city, where it worked guarding breweries, butchers' shops, stockyardsand factories. The Leonberger is a large, muscular, and elegant dog with balanced body type, medium temperament, and dramatic presence.The head is adorned with a striking black mask and projects the breed's distinct expression of intelligence, pride, and kindliness. Remaining true to their early roots as a capable family and working dog and search-and-rescue dog (particularly water), the surprisingly agile Leonberger is sound and coordinated, with both strength in bearing and elegance in movement. A sexually dimorphic breed, the Leonberger possesses either a strongly masculine or elegantly feminine form, making gender immediately discernible
