Plodding Along

















Another case for leaving things alone: the dog.  After the cocky "how to paint a dog" post, it's been tough going.   The white in the last layer added fluffiness but it destroyed all of the volume from the first layer.   I spent a good deal of time painting the volume back in and it will take some work to get the spark back.  On a brighter note, the colors used are now meshing together as a whole.  The setting is coming along, you can see a frozen marsh area developing on the left, and snow in the foreground.
