Even though I’ve never owned a Rottweiler, I’ve always enjoyed painting them. The combination of a huge, muscular body and a playful, happy face is how I think of this gentle giant. Having been commissioned to paint numerous rottweilers, I can truly say their families are among the most loyal dog owners I’ve ever met. Most say they never had or will ever have any other breed. When I look at a face like Gunther, I can see the reason for their devotion.
