At  the Phase II for the Ranunculus painting I made a wash for the background and started on the tablecloth pattern, trying to place it in the perspective and keep it simple as intended. The challenge with the background is that until the flowers are worked on the pale green does not look appealing to me as I usually  choose the darker background when flowers are light. But we will see.

This cute guy lives in our Cul-de-sac. He has quite a few brothers in the house. One day when I prepared the sketchbook photo references he was out and he was my first model that morning. I promised myself that I’ve paint full size painting one day. And here we go few month later the dream came true. You can see sketch 6×4 on the bottom and 8″x10″ painting that I’ve finished today. The challenge was (as it is probably for a lot of artists) to paint dogs hair. The teeny tiny ones that were covering his eyes, but that I really wanted to paint in order to keep the character in place.
