#1029 Wilderness

There's a moose in my yard. Okay, it squeaks and is made of fleece, so it only looks like a moose and it's not even a very good likeness, because moose are not green or fluffy. Every time someone goes outside, she brings a companion. still life, acrylic, 6x6"

#1013 Saturday's Sheep

We painted from sheep photos today. The objective of the lesson was to paint from a bad photo. In this case it was one without strong lighting (I have lots of these). So, we all made up the darks and the lights in value studies and then added colors of the same values after. 4x4" acrylic
