Jan 18 - The Dog and Pheasant Painting Finished

The Welsh Springer Spaniel is now in the painting, and I've spent the balance of my "brush time" with the trees and background. I've made those areas more visually interesting by texturizing the areas with similar hues and values.

This image doesn't show the lighter values on the tree trunks, and for that I'm disappointed. There's a lot going on in those darks, and to omit them does a disservice to the work. This 12 x 16 acrylic is called "Flush", and hopefully will be shipped to Wichita for the show in March. On February 4th, I'll know if any of the four got in. Just around the corner!
