Very solid piece! Anthony, you have such an impressive range of skills, can you share a little bit about your art education?

Very Well Done!

Anthony, your work is amazing! I'm talking both about the portrait, and in regards to your work featured on your website. The dachshund with the hat is probably my favorite.

Thanks everyone!

My education was primarily commercial, but I was pointed in the right direction by my professor regarding oil painting techniques. He showed me examples of layering methods which I've practiced for quite some time now.
