oil on canvas
I feel adrift so I decided to post a commission from last Christmas. I've changed my method of painting and the consistency of the paint I use since this piece. I remember thinking this one was close to the style in which I wanted to work, looking at it now, I've totally changed my mind.
The Mastiff I'm working on is coming along, thought I could post tonight, but no. It's my first pet commission on black canvas and the difference in the process is startling! I think listening to Jelaine's advice is the most significant change I've made in my process since I started painting professionally four years ago. Thanks,yet again.
Hopefully, I'll be able to post the Mastiff tomorrow and get back on smaller pieces while I work on a portrait commission. I miss those little buggers.
