Dog lovers will give this artist “a hand”

handimal German Shorthair Pointer portrait

This is a collection of hand (literally) painted animals by  Italian artist, Guido Daniele.   

Daniele has worked for years using his talents as an illustrator for advertisers on canvas and buildings, but in 1990 he started painting bodies. His famous body painting techniques were used in many different situations such as advertising pictures and commercials, fashion events and exhibitions.

They are all pretty cool, but of course I am partial to the German Shorthair Pointer and the Dalmation.  Hopefully he does a Bernese Mountain Dog soon!
