Continuing with Bonnie
Tomorrow I'll continue to detail the fur, using both my Rembrandts and my Giraults, and maybe even a little NuPastel for the thinnest lines.
I need to decide whether or not I'm going to put a highlight on the wood floor. I'd like it to look shiny but am a bit concerned about ruining it. So I guess I'll get out my scrap of Pergo, lay it in the sun, and see if I can figure out how to paint a highlight.
So far, I'm happy with the drama of light in this piece, and portraying light is one of the things I'm working on these days.
Bonnie was younger and stronger in this photo than she is now, which makes me both happy (to remember) and a bit sad (for her aging). Sweet Bonnie.
