Just Some Finishing Up This Week ...

SInce the last post, I have scrumbled and intensified the background, brightened the soles, and darkened some of the shadows around the laces. It looks stronger, but nothing like the drama-queen spike heels, but for these old beaters, it's a suitable finish.

I started a small painting of this clematis, think ing I would be done in a day. 

Four days later, the flower does not stand out like the photo. Maybe another round of glazing the background, and deepening the shadows on the flower???

And just because I needed to work on something, I did this quick sketch of a pit bull puppy with meltingly sweet eyes.
That's about it in my part of the art world. Have to move - working in the office today. Hopefully, I'll get some chicken, lamb and goat photos and sketches up later this week ...
