Lily of the Lake
"Lily of the Lake"
7x5 acrylic on canvas
This a new commission I started today of a dog named Lily. She loves being on the water so I'm working from a photo of her and her owner in a kayak. The finished painting will just have Lily in it.
Right now I don't have the proportions of Lily quiet right. She's not as fat as I have her painted by any means and it's the main thing I need to change. When I painted the lake water I should have gone all the way across, but I stopped short where I thought I'd be placing Lily. This caused me to get the proportions off a little. Nothing a little paint can't fix.
I also started a self portrait today. Tomorrow I'll be posting the progress on that if there's anything worth showing.
