Day #2 of my Dog Day Month3-Meet Mongo

Day #2 in My Dog Day Month3- "Mongo" 12"x16" oil Pet owner is artist Julie Skoda a good friend and great pastel artist.

These are the painting steps I took for Mongo's journey-

Mongo sketched in on a toned canvas. Kind of felt like walking away at this point. Just wasn't happy with the drawing.

Painting the darks in on Mongo.

Mongo painting blocked in. Time to tighten it up.

Mongo is pretty much finished. He's very wet on the easel.
