From the French word meaning "small and pretty; dainty" this lovely American Cocker Spaniel couldn't be more aptly named. This gorgeous girl's golden locks were a fun challenge to paint, from varying hair lengths (short and soft to long and wavy), to the varieties of cream and copper coloured locks. The piece was all about texture and contrast.
Another of last year's Christmas portraits, Mignon was a well received surprise on Christmas morning. Her portrait will be enjoyed for years to come.
