Below is a progression of a commissioned painting of a clumber spaniel named Truman that I am working on... There is still a way to go on this one but progress is being made. The biggest challenge of this piece has been handling all of the "so called" whites. This is a white dog in the snow and it has been eye-opening dealing with all of the different colors and different values. This is definitely one of the more difficult paintings I have worked on so far and I feel like I am being pushed which is always a good thing.
