You might remember that I painted this special woman with her sister in April this year for their mother's Mother's Day gift. Now, thanks to her sister, Patti, I get to paint her with her Maltese, Suzy Q. I took my time today and painted from 1 p.m until 6 p.m. today. It's pretty rough still, but I think it's coming along well. Her dog is pure white, and in the reference photo for this painting, unlike the one for the painting of her mother with their dog I painted in April, there isn't much in the way of shadow, so it will be a bit of a challenge to portray Suzy Q well. I'll be working on this painting again tomorrow. I'll post progress images again then. Now I'm going out to fellow and sister artists' blogs to see what they/you painted today.... Always a favorite time of day!
