"Watch Dog"

 "Watch Dog"
oil, 8x10"


This is our dog Toby, a bishon frise, he loves to pose for pictures but at this time
 his mind was so focused on anyone walking by. We were down in 
California when this picture was taken, this is his favorite spot to
keep watch.

"Sunflower Cuttings"

"Sunflower Cuttings"
oil, 8x10"
Sunflowers are always a joy to paint! The yellow petals are so
vibrant when the light hits them. I dulled out the surroundings
so the sunflowers would pop.

Sketch

I start with sketching in the composition, always checking balance and placement
of each shape. Next, I start blocking in with a thin wash of either color or
burnt sienna. I then start adding paint, concentrating on values and shapes.
 To finish, my goal is to give it strength, stronger color in areas where needed, making
sure my values are where they belong. Light to strong darks on the value scale.
