Dixie’s owner contacted me about doing an 8″x10″ portrait and I was happy to do it. This is a different kind of adventure… a studio adventure. Instead of 1-3 hours, these works can take a week or more depending on the size and complication of the subject and background.
As you can see from the progress pics, Dixie seems to be coming along nicely. There are always unique challenges regarding portraits but I welcome the change. Turning the form carefully on a head is big fun.
I plan to post the progress on Dixie as this is taking all my painting time at the moment. Please let me know what you think about how I’ve “changed it up.”
