Bandanna Boy

I am continuing with the 12 x 12 Canvas format. I had plenty of paint leftover on my palette from the last boston terrier portrait- so here we have a chihuahua in the same color scheme. I threw in the bandanna to compensate for the thin neck.

Painted side of the canvas.

Again, I used a gallery stretched canvas with grey gessoe. I used a pastel pencil to quickly sketch out the pup and proceeded with paint application. As you can see, I tend to work all over the canvas keeping the eyes for last.
