|I painted this last wet-in-wet wash on His Lordship's head this morning, and put it aside to dry. It kept catching my eye ... in a very good way. I think it looks very striking. Let's hope I maintain this feel and look!|
|This was the first wash - very loose and wet, using quin. burnt orange and a dark violet mixture.|
|When dry, I painted a more controlled glaze over the shadows of his face and topline, just indicating the mane.|
|I also went to a different reference photo.|
|While working on Voodoo, I also started a study of my niece. Again, I tried to paint in a more impressionistic manner.|
It's a beautiful photo, but the quality is not great - wishing I could enlarge it to focus on her face.
|I love the old pond in back, and right now am quite taken with the look of the willows. Painting subject soon???|
