Ryder, take 2

"Ryder 2"
6" x 6"
acrylic on panel

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?
