I started another painting of Lulu. She's a willing subject, but looks different every time I look at her with her tousled hair and wonky teeth. Here is what I did at the senior center Monday morning, doesn't she look angelic? Well, she isn't. It needs a lot more work, but I photographed it so I could remember there is an angel dog hidden behind the scruffy rough and tumble little terrier/devil dog I know so well.
This was done with a pencil sketch and thinned out acrylic washes. White gesso, raw umber, red iron oxide and yellow iron oxide.
There is a plaid chair sketched in behind her, not sure how I will handle that yet. Next time you see this you probably will not recognize it. Lulu is a challenge in life and in paintings.
