Sweet Sadie dog....

For Brian's birthday, I decided to paint our own sweet girl: meet Sadie, the goofy, cuddly, playful load of trouble pictured here. I really wanted to capture this face... her right ear is always higher than her left. While I was painting, she was laying right beside me, which helped a ton! The painting is 11x14 acrylic on wooden panel. Loving the way the water is absorbed. I've toyed with going back and adding a more complex background into the painting... I'll probably leave it as it is.

Project in progress: A marketplace full of peppers! I've been working on this commission  for about a week and a half. It was hard to decide where to start, so i knocked out the composition first, filled in what i guess would be behind the foreground i can see, and started building outward.

See pictures at the bottom of the post that I'm working from. Acrylic on 18x24 canvas. I'll continue to post progress, and am expecting to finish this next week!

Combining these three pictures, focusing on the first- I'm planning fruit on the left side in the low boxes, and some flowers in the right lower boxes I haven't started yet.

Thanks for reading!
