In the beginning I painted Dalmatians to help Dals in need and today I am beginning the return to help Dalmatian Rescue of Tampa Bay.
This new painting just started today is a work in progress (WIP) inspired by one of their Dal Mixes named Dusty.
Sharing a couple of images in close crop format.
I start with basic lines to place the composition, I go right to the eyes to begin the connection to the painting for myself.
It seems more than a two dimensional exercise when the subjects eyes are watching you paint.
