Day 21

"Close-up Clover"
6" x 6"

This is my dog, Clover, a golden retriever.  The reference photo for this was not great, just a fuzzy close-up from my phone.  But sometimes that is the best thing to work from, because you are seeing those big shapes first, and you don't get caught up in the smaller details. I used only three colors, ivory black, yellow orche, and cadmium red light. I like how this turned out but seeing on the screen I now see little things I could tweek.  How do you know when to stop on a painting?
