Meanwhile, I did get out the paints! Worked a little on the new Wilderness Challenge of Gary Keimig's, two swans in the water. I do find painting water to be a little intimidating so I just dove right in! (so to speak).

Take the time to get the sketch right...
Working today on the sketch for a portrait of my friend's lab. I really want it to be special, as their very special dog passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. So, I am sketching from her photos, and lately I really want to get out the paint, so I am trying to take my time and get the sketch right. Always a little more challenging when it is someone's baby, they know every angle of their dog, so it has to be right, not just "close enough".
