Cutie Patootie

Cutie Patootie 5" x 5" oil on board, acrylic underpainting
Just a quick post to show this little sweet guy painted in oil.  He did make it back into the water again on his own.  Sometimes we don't know what we're frightened of so we do nothing instead of just taking those little steps and eventually getting our feet wet.  This is the first time in years that I painted in oil.  It was a good little painting to get my feet wet again.

He is just SO cute! well done you! It must be the week for trying new things/doing things we haven't done for years! and you're right - often we surprise ourselves with just how good we are after all!

Have a lovely creative week

This is precious. Every time I visit your blog and see your artwork, I learn something new about technique or color or something. I love the orangey-red around the dog's body. I wouldn't have known to do that, and it just looks fabulous!

Ooo...will you paint my sweet Lily? Love the whole essence of this painting. It's like you captured his total "dogginess" in simple yet effective brush strokes.
