Baby - In Progress




Here's one I'm working on for my friend Paula....her dog Baby. Trying to keep it loose but at the same time, I want it to capture Baby's likeness so parts need to be tight. I'm trying to decide on the background color also. Most of the time I tone my canvases with burnt sienna before I paint on them. I like to see the background peek through the paint in areas because I think it adds vibrancy and unifies the piece. The other picture is my temp studio in my dad's building that will soon be leased. ...soooo nice having a large space like this!!😌
