Day 2: Paws

6x6
acrylic on panel

This painting was a challenge just getting the drawing correct. I am not sure I did that but I rotated  the panel to see if it looked correct from the up angle as well. Also used the mirror and camera to look again. I don't think I could have been an artist back in the day. They had some tools but obviously no digital ones.

  1. Got to tell ya I am jealous, like what you are doing a lot and want to take the same step to try acrylics instead of the drawing tools. Really unique perspective, I bet it was a challenge. Can't wait to see more as we go on. Am going to spend some time on your site!!

    1. I think I know what you would do with those mud pies...3 steps to making mud pies, mud pie of the week on FB and then there might be mud pie calendars. I would be buying :-)
