Oil on Raymar Panel
This is my first of the 30 paintings in 30 days hosted by Leslie Saeta. May I introduce Emma…a longtime companion who unfortunately is no longer with us. Sometimes these paintings are difficult to do because I desperately want to capture the essence of the beloved pet…it is a huge responsibility that I take very seriously. Since my goal is to paint family and friends…I knew Emma would fit into either category. I am pleased to say that the painting was well received.
As an aside I decided to show my sketches for this 30 day project…here is Emma's sketch.
As you can see I am not careful. I am just trying to see where everything is in relation to where everything else is. I am lining up the eye…nose and ear…It makes it so much easier to start painting.
So I am smiling as I prepare for my next painting!!!
