Observations and thoughts about the fine art of painting

Woof, Woof, Woof.
A fellow prof. (he teaches psychology) at Sacramento City College commissioned me to paint his two dogs which I did in about 3 hours. I first covered my canvas in a blazing hot blue. When dry, I did a relatively tight contour drawing on it with white pencil. Normally I just start painting in large, rough shapes and then refine but sometimes, and with acrylics, I'll take the somewhat paint by numbers approach. It always seems to work. Enjoy.
