Another Project

A cropped shot I took last summer

Warm wash behind, cool in front

Start on B-Man
Colors used are aureolin, quin. burnt orange, quin. violet and indanthrene blue

Gradually increasing intensity

A bit of definition within tan and black
   I am also working on a smaller portrait of my landlady's dog, Buddy. Buddy was a lost-and-foundling, discovered mooching around some local farms. Pat took him in as a companion for another dog, and he has been living in BLISS for the last ten years. He truly adores Pat. I'm sure it is mutual; I quite often hear her having "conversations" with Mr. Buddlington [as he is known formally] He really is quite a cool dog; if you believe in reincarnation, Buddy is most definitely an old soul. It is a pleasure to be painting him for Pat's birthday.


  1. It is looking great, wonderful to have such a good friend to share your days.

  2. It is looking good! Love those fluid washes you've got in there. :)

  3. Am looking forward to seeing the completed painting - it's coming on really well.



  4. So glad I found your blog. This is coming along beautifully - I'm looking forward to seeing it finished - and to make sure I don't miss it, I'm following you! :)

  5. Can't wait to see this one finished:) Looking great! Just got caught up on your blog. Your last couple paintings have been great. Also love your kitty drinking out of the sink, mine do that also:)
