Waiting for Santa 6 10/19/2010
Aha...this painting is on the home stretch now! See - I *am* bound and determined to have it done in time for Christmas card sales in my gallery. :)
Today, I've completed the left side of the German Shepherd's face, and the tree skirt he's laying on. Tomorrow, I'll be working from the middle to the right, and I always work faster toward the end...when I can see it coming to life.
You may not see another in progress photo, as usually when I get close to the end, I just finish it up since I'm working much faster.
I forgot to say before -- please excuse these cruddy photos...I'm shooting these right on the easel, where the lighting is right for my work, but not good for photos (I shoot all of my finished paintings outdoors just before I spray them with a fixative).
Just for fun, I've posted the entire in progress photo gallery from start to finish, so you can see the progression without having to go through my blog to see each one. Click on the photos to enlarge them.
