After the Layoff


Completed the fourth dog of 2016 and I think he's the most handsome.   He's titled: "You Looking at Me?"

I've discovered I'm a much better alla prima painter than a traditional multi-session painter.  Once I get the sketch/drawing on the canvas and start applying the paint; if I can push myself to keep going, the finished work is much better than if I worked lots of sessions.  I fuss too much and it shows; for instance:

This landscape is months in the making and it's still not quite finished.  Too much fussing.  Maybe there's a 12 step group for artistic fussing.
