A little further on this cute little lady tonight... though, there is plenty still to do. I've started working on her muzzle and around the eyes, leaving the details in the hair for the second pass. So far, my palette has been pretty limited: titanium white, paynes grey, light blue violet, quinacridone gold, and transparent earth orange (all Daniel Smith colours).
It has been a busy couple of weeks full of flakey internet access, a head cold, and a new puppy that I haven't had a chance to update (or paint) this blog. Though... I did manage to get started on this Christmas commission of an adorable boxer. Eyes and nose first (almost done the nose) and then I will begin filling in the fur.
I didn't get as much studio time this weekend... been busy canning and getting the fall gardening done. Though, I did manage to start a new sunset painting (based off a photo on a drive home on fall evening last year). It is not the greatest photo (some of the subtle colour seemed to have been lost), but I will post a better photograph when I get a bit more done. Unlike my last sunset painting, I will be doing this one in a couple stages. Today I blocked in the major colours and then when this layer is pretty much dry I will glaze in some of the cloud structures. Stay tuned!
A fun little wintery painting (possibly my Christmas card for this year) today... perhaps a season ahead of time, but... with the cool weather the last couple of days it sure feels like it is going to snow.
