Wildlife and Domestic Animals
The commissioned "Animal Oil Portraits" that Newsome creates elicit very positive emotional reactions from her customers. The life-like quality of the primary subject is highly valued. The portrait backgrounds are of subtle tonal blending and serve to enhance the animal’s form and personality. The infusion of personality is equally as important to the customer as the correct likeness of the animal. People who love their animals as one would love a child find the oil portraits infinitely superior to photographs.
