Sugar


I did this 8x10 oil sketch in 2hrs. It probably could use a little more tweaking. What I enjoy is doing quick studies, eventually I will start working on larger pieces. Like most of my work these pieces are just an incubator of ideas to be worked on later. So for now it's practice, practice etc.

My grandkids are spending an overnight visit with us, so this will be my last post for the weekend.

Hope all is well with everyone. Happy Painting all.

  6. Hi Joan!.... "Sugar" is one sweet piece of "eye candy"... as some say!

    Beautifully created texture and values! I love the looseness of the work It has spark... just as you would imagine this young pup would have!

    A real portrait gem. Forget the tweaking!

    Good Painting!@
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce
