Pat I notice you are doing the background first, this always the last part I do, sort of have to work up to it.
thanks Carmelina, I hope you enjoy the progress xx
I suppose we all work differently Frank, it makes art interesting. :)For me, I always do the background first - mainly because if I did the dog first and perfectly, I'd be petrified of ruining it with a poor background ! A subtle one like I have can be thrown further back by the painting, or made bolder should the finished dog warrant it.
I love the way the background is very subtle - makes Roxy stand out so much more, whilst still giving an impression of the situation the painting is taken from. Excellent!
