Cute Dog

I get to paint the cutest subjects.  This is "Buddy".  He is a Walker Coon Hound.  He just loves to follow his nose. 

1. This is the beginning sketch with washes.

2. Here he is with the a interpretation of the original background.

"Buddy in Blue".  24"x24" oil on canvas.  I took out all the background noise and distilled it down to Buddy and his reading materials, or rather evidence of the presence of his owner, Ellen.
