Introducing... "Buddy"

I added the sky yesterday... a couple glazes of pthalo blue, zinc-titanium white, and a hint of alizarin crimson. I haven't decided if I am going to add some clouds in the background yet or leave it as a plain sky.

I usually have several (more than I probably should) little masterpieces on the go at any one time. At the moment... I have five oils, five watercolors, and two acrylics.... I find that this works best for me. If I get frustrated with one painting, I can put it down and work on a different one. Perhaps one of these days I'll share a snapshot of my work area.
