I thought I'd try to paint Ryder again. He has such a cute face and I love how structured he is. When I paint my dog, Clover, he's just all fur, and it's hard to find the underlying forms/structure. This was a good "jumping back into things" painting because I kind of threw everything I had into it, technique-wise. I didn't stick to my original palette, I drew/paint which I try not to do and eventually I just said "quit while you're ahead!" But in the end, I don't mind it. It makes me want to keep going, and that's what it's all about, right?
