Fabulous job on this one Maria, love the warm/cool play and your simplification. And that eye says doggie in the most perfect way. :-)
Thank you Liz! Rufus has the most expressive eyes, that is what I admire most in this little guy.
This is a great painting.What a terrific dog.
Thank you Helen! He is a super model, always has the funniest expressions.
Beautiful work Maria. The limited palette works wonderfully.
Thank you Laura, I would like to use a limited palette more often. I think it really helps me focus on value.
Love this Maria! Such beautiful washes. I was thinking the same thoughts about simplifying when I was painting today!
Thanks Dottie! May have to write that word SIMPLIFY in big letters above my desk, this 30 in 30 is challenging!
Maria, I think your work is fabulous! Your perfect studio sounds just like one I would love to have too. We're dog lovers here too...and cat lovers...bird lovers...lizard lovers...Well...animal lovers I guess is the right description. Your German Shepherd is arresting!
Thank you so much! I painted the shepherd in honor of a friend, who lost their dog unexpectedly this last week, I still need to mat it and deliver it. I am glad you like it, I hope they will too.
