This is one of the rescue dogs belonging to my student, who is painting her animals. This photo was in the studio and I couldn't resist. Those ears. That anxiety. Ai yi yi.
I made myself paint it primarily with the 1 inch bristle brush, trying to build on what I have been learning about getting the form down faster. The paint behaves differently with the bristle --- the oily quality is more apparent and edges merge more easily. Also, it was fun to paint a dog that wasn't a commission -- bwa ha ha --- no one to please. This went down pretty much in one shot.
