And all is well...

since "there is hope in a hanging snore" - Eggen. of finishing my work before the spring show submissions this week. Lately I did a watercolor rendering of this dog we met at the beach, and a pastel portrait of Juan. The more transparent treatment of the portrait comes out a bit hard edged in the photo, especially around the face. Just recently had an awakening about the importance of massing value and local colour first, before playing with colour and planes. So hopefully future portraits will come out a bit more unified.
