Maddie WIP 2

Here is where I am up to with the oil Dog Pet Portrait of Maddie the Blue Heeler so far. I have given the background a second coat and very roughly underpainted most of Maddie. This underpainting is a guide for when I work over it with the next layers of paint, colour and detail. As I paint I adjust paint colours etc. as I go. The grass around Maddie's feet will be added very last of all. Still working on the Horse and Rider pastel and have begun my pastel of a Bighorn Sheep.

  1. Maddie is coming along great Sally. Looking forward to more updates.

  2. Thankyou for your comments Dors and Sam!

  3. Hi Sally, good to see you are keeping busy, I missed you when you went away! I hate the beginning of portraits, they seem so far away from the final image! This is a great start though with the colours already showing how it all fits together.
