|I think I left off here - darkened left [in photo] of neck|
|Same stage, different lighting|
|Last three photos are at same stage today, with outdoor light, but different adjustments in editing.|
|No editing, other than cropping|
I e-mailed the painting image to a friend and fellow artist, Deborah Strong, as she also does a lot of animal portraiture, in colored pencil. She is the same woman who held the silk painting class last week. On her recommendation, I darkened the tongue, closest to the upper lip [do dogs have lips?] And I darkened the pinks near her flews and the gums and teeth. I glazed a bit more warmth into the eyes with quin. burnt orange and quin. violet. I'd like to get the chain done today sometime, and then put it aside for a day or two before really critiquing it. But I also would love to spend some time with Bruno today; I left him to his own devices on Wednesday, and Thursday I had to go to work.
As always, all comments and criticisms are most welcome!!! Thank you all!
