23-04-20 – Dog portrait WIP

I’ve mapped out the rest of this handsome chap today, apart from the collar/medallion which I’ll do as their own separate session. The latest area is looking rather too grey right now, but his fur is a whitish colour that is in shadow and this is the darkest areas of the fur’s depth. Once I’ve blended this out with some thinners, it’ll lighten up and I’ll be able to smooth out the steps a lot.

Next stage I’ll add some more pigment where it is needed and then I’ll blend it out before working up the details and bringing it towards completion. The lightness of his fur is certainly a difficult one to depict, but I think I’m doing OK with it.
