While I wait for the glazes to dry on the Gordon Setter, I get to start glazing the Irish Setter. Here are a few progression shots. Once I get about four hours into a painting, the excitement that I feel for the work begins to turn to frustration as problems appear. I know from experience that this is a natural process and if I just stay with it, work through the difficulties, then I will have a painting that hits the mark I was aiming for.
There is a look in a dog that expresses love and devotion. I can't express how I get that look but I know it when I see it. At that point, the painting is finished. We are a long ways from that happening here but after twenty seven years of painting, I know the way to get there.
If you would like to know when this painting will be available, please,"Sign Up For News of Your Breed & Other Art" or in the lower right side of this web page.
I would love to hear your thoughts or comments.
