Painting Nemo and Paint & Partake
This is a study of Nemo, for a commission for a friend. It's a Labradoodle, and I'm working from a photograph so I thought I would paint a small version first (8x8) and make sure the coloring is true to Nemo....This isn't the photo I will be using for the final, but I thought the way he cocked his head was cute.....I'm glad I did this first, because the compostion is not great, and it needs more contrast. Suggestions? Lighter background perhaps?
Tonight I'm attending an event called Paint and Partake, at the Red Tornado Gallery in Findlay, Ohio, where we will try 4 wines AND paint a masterpiece in 3 short hours, all for the low price of $30. I love events like this that are low in commitment and price, but high in fun!
