Emmaline on the easel

Blocking in the colors. This will be creepy, weird when finished because the background will be painted out from the black. I am doing washes of acrylic to build up the colors on Emmaline, something new to me.

Ashleigh with Cat Almost Finished

I imagine just one more day of touch-ups and I will be finished with this one. Best I can tell by the photograph I am working from that this is one old cat.
Decided to get rid of that window in the background and keep with my style of black.

Ashley and Cat on the Easel

Every time I look at this, I think "Oh My &%$#", but then get to work and am usually happy by the time I finish up. Then I look the next time and think, "Oh My %$&#". Once I work in the details on the cat and add the hair, which will make a huge difference, I will be in a better place. The problem I have with this painting is it is just too sweet. What to do? Stay tuned to find out....

Brianna II

I really like this painting because it is just in your face. I did not mess with the shirt too much, left it very vague and little detail.

Ashley with Cat

Even more color being blocked in, and starting to get some shape to the face.

Blocking in more color.

Ashley and Cat On the Easel

Usual stuff here. 16 x 20 on gallery wrapped canvas. Blocking in colors. Already do not like the purple sheets, so will most likely change the colors there. These two photos represent about 2 hours work.
