On to the Soft Pastels
I think it's working so far. But I'm going back to my initial concern about there being too much blank space. The way I positioned the three dogs pretty much rules out significant cropping. And I can't think of anything else to put in the painting. Hopefully it will help when I add the bright water splashes because that will effectively "enlarge" the dogs.
I need names for these guys. I've been referring to the front dog as "he" but now I think of him as a her, so I'll name her Molly, a sweet older girl. The lab will be Bodie after my dog's golden lab friend at daycare. I don't know the breed of the center dog. But I think I'll call him Pepper. There - all named!
